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.

Absolutely wonderful! So happy I decided to try out Prairie Ridge Animal Hospital. The staff was exceptional and I am so thankful for the care my dog, Belle, received. The vet is no longer a dreadful place. Prairie Ridge offers extremely clean and comfortable exam rooms, caring and concerned staff, and affordable pricing! I know Belle will be in good hands for her health care.
