    Default PWD for White House

    I just saw on CNN that the Portuguese Water Dog is the choice for the White House! Said his name is "Bo"

    Personally, I'm happy that the labradoodle was not chosen.

    I just hope that the choice for the PWD will not adversely affect the breed by gaining in popularity and irresponsible breeding.

    I saw that as well. Hopefully it won't start a craze but at least it wasn't a "doodle"!

    Fox news says the dog was named Charlie and the girls are changing it to Bo. It comes from the breeder of Ted Kennedy’s PWD’s and was sold and then returned to the breeder at 6 months. So it makes the “rescue” theme and gets past the presidential gift rules as well.

    Thank goodness (if he wasn't going to get a rescue) that he got a dog from a reputable breeder!

    I just read a good article on the breeder of the new First Dog:

    -Julie, Monty (2005 YLM), Rogue (2009 BLM), and Eddy (2013 BLM)

    So we have a Kennedy in the White House again?
