A Fluffmutt for First Dog!

What an amazing night! McCain gave a gracious concession speech, and Obama's speech was inspiring, with the beautiful city of Chicago as its backdrop. Even if you voted for McCain, I would hope you could appreciate the significance of last night's election.

It's kind of like when the Bears lost the Super Bowl in 2007. I was disappointed my hometown team lost, but the fact that Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy -- both classy guys -- got their well-deserved Super Bowl rings (and Dungy became the first African-American coach to win the Super Bowl) took the sting out of the disappointment.

So on to the next matter at hand: the promised puppy for Obama's daughters. I believe they should get a rescued fluffmutt like Charlie. Getting a rescue or pound dog would be a great example for the country, with its overpopulation of dogs. I've heard that someone in the Obama family has a dog allergy, and a Bichon/poodle mix like Charlie doesn't shed and therefore is less allergic.

Charlie is the cutest, smartest and funniest dog I've known. I think a dog like him would charm the country. Fluffmutt for First Dog!

I love your dog! He is adorable.

I just love Charlie. I really doubt you would give him up to go to the White House.

That is a great idea that they get a rescue dog. I hope they will do this. I have three rescue dogs myself, but I got them before they were sent to the pound. I have two 11 year old dachshunds that came from a couple that was divorcing. I can imagine people getting divorced but not giving up their dogs. Dogs only give you love and nothing to fight about.

I hope they get a rescue dog, too -- I love mine. On another poll I suggested a "Blue Heeler" but no one got my obscure joke.

Emiline & Lisa, glad you liked the post...

Barbara -- I wouldn't give them Charlie! I think they should have a dog LIKE Charlie.

Karin -- I got the humor about the "blue" part but I had to Google "Blue Heeler." I thought I knew my dog breeds but that one was a new one to me!
