Who Will Be The Next Official White House Dog? An Open Letter To Malia And Sasha Obama

Dear Sasha and Malia:

It’s soooo cool that you will soon be welcoming a new member to your family!  I totally agree with you:  dogs are great addition!  It’s going to be a tough decision, I’m sure, because there are so many of us and so many that would love a home…white, pink, blue or whatever!   But I know your white house will be a little more special and your new pooch will probably enjoy some extra benefits–like chef-cooked meals…  Soooo lucky!!!

I don’t know what your options are, but I just did a search under Google and found lots of animal shelters in the Washington D.C. area, like the Washington Humane Society or the Washington Animal Rescue that may have that special “someone” you’ve been wishing for.  I thought I’d tell you–just in case. 

In the meantime, I’ve put together for you a Presidential Dog Gallery so that your new friend can check out his or her former predecessors.

    Hi Niqqi
    What a good post. Lots of research went into this one. Whatever dog the Obama’s adopt will be one lucky pup.
    See you soon.
    Love Ruby

    Dear Ruby~

    Thank you! I really like research and the Internet makes it very rewarding because there’s soooo much information!

    I hope your “stinky breath” issue has been resolved!

    Fluffs & hugs,

    Interesting post! My hoomans were just talking about what Obama should get. Well to us, he doesn’t look like a guy who suits a small breed dog. He looks like a guy who needs a big, friendly, well trained, well socialized dog. I say the Golden is the best breed for him but then his daughter is kinda allergic to long haired breeds. So I don’t know which one he’ll choose but whatever he gets, hopefully he gets a big dog.

    Not feeling well,

    Funny, Amber-Mae!! I know it’ll be quite a decision. Maybe they should get more than one…one big, one small, one medium sized… Pretty lucky, nonetheless!



  7. Lorenza Says:

    Hi, Niqqi!
    I can’t wait to meet the new member of the presidential family!
    Kisses and hugs

  8. niqqi Says:

    Hola Lorenza!

    I can’t wait either! The White House is sooo big, that maybe they should consider a few!

    Laughs and fluffs,
