In Dog We Trust

If you haven't seen Nancy Gibbs' essay in Time magazine "In Dog We Trust," you really should take a look. She says: "Picking a President is critical. And so is selecting a canine companion in the White House."

It's a great article. Plus it let me know that the American Kennel Club (AKC) is conducting a survey to suggest the "right" dog for the Obama family. Given that those girls have allergies, the ballot selection is limited to 5 hypoallergenic breeds. Nancy Gibbs makes a good case for a mixed breed pup in her essay. Here! here! and amen!

While you're surfing, check out a photo gallery of US Presidents and their canine companions.

Who said election season wasn't fun for dog people?!
