well at least i like the first pets . . .
My parents mentioned to me the fact that our new president has a new pet-- a scottie dog-- but I hadn't yet read anything about it. So today I did a search and found some pictures . . . sure, enough. The Governor of New Jersey gifted the first family with a scottie named Barney and he's darn cute.
Here's a picture of him playing with the other first dog-- a springer spaniel. And another and another. And one of the first lady w/ Barney.
I mean, Barney is no Fala, but I'm happy there's a Scottie in the white house, dangit (pity the Scottie's not running the country, that'd certainly be interesting . . . ).
(The Bushes also have a cat named India and the springer spaniel that's one of Millie's kids).
