A surprising issue that has arisen in the American political arena is not foreign policy, but rather which breed of dog the Obama's chose to join their family in the White House. Barack Obama has announced that his family narrowed their breed choices to a Labradoodle, a mix between a Labrador retriever and a Poodle, and a Portuguese water dog. Both breeds are large, with curly hair and a mild amount of shedding.
Obama stated in interviews that a limiting factor was his daughter Malia's allergies. They decided on a six month old Portuguese water dog they named Bo. The dog is a gift from Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, who owns several Portuguese water dogs.
Whether a pet's name comes from pop culture, their owner's profession, or is named after a loved one, there are many choices for pets names. The Presidential dog is named "Bo" in reference to singer Bo Diddley. Below are the most popular dog names:
VCA Aurora Animal Hospital
2600 West Galena Boulevard, Aurora
VCA Arboretum View Animal Hospital
2551 Warrenville Road, Downers Grove
I have always been very happy with the service and treatment we have received at Countryside. This weekend was a little disappointing, but they totally made up for it today when a vet tech came TO MY HOUSE on her way home to give my cat her medicine when they didn't have it in stock this past weekend and I couldn't bring her in myself.
