Why no fluff pieces about Bush’s dogs?

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

We just got back from D.C. and while there, took a tour of the White House. br /br /Did you know that President Bush has two dogs? I didn’t, until I saw some pictures up in the West Wing of him playing with them. What I find interesting is that we heard about the Clinton’s cat, a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socks_(cat)”Socks,/a nonstop, and their dog, Buddy. Now, the Obamas are just a href=”http://www.mlive.com/us-politics/index.ssf/2008/11/obama_dog_purebred_or_mutt.html”thinking about getting a dog /aand the media just loves the story. The main time we heard much about the Bush’s dogs was a href=”http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/presidentbush/2008/11/barney-the-whit.html”when one bit /a a Reuters reporter. Who can blame him? But it just goes to show, no ongoing fluff media pieces for Bush, it might make him too human.br /br /Can anyone here tell me the breed of dogs Bush has without googling the information and tell me their names?
