Kennedy Endorses Water Dog For Obama Family
[from the unbelievable but true file!]
WBZTV.Com ^ | January 13, 2009
Senator Ted Kennedy made an important political endorsement Tuesday [January 2009]. Massachusetts' Senior Senator endorsed the Portuguese water dog as the perfect pet for the nation's new first family.
"A Portuguese water dog is the perfect choice for first dog," Kennedy said in a written statement. "The Obama girls -- and their parents -- will love a Portuguese water dog. They're loyal, smart, loving and they became a real part of the family. And they definitely do not shed."
Senator Kennedy and wife Vicki have three Portuguese water dogs of their own. Sunny and Splash often accompany Kennedy to the Senate. "They love being around people and being part of the action," he said.
The Kennedy's just added a third Portuguese water dog to the family, a puppy named Captain Courageous or 'Cappy' for short. ..."
Senator Ted Kennedy's
Portuguese Water Dog puppy,
"file picture of a Portuguese water dog, the breed Barack Obama's family has picked as the first puppy"
THE family of US president Barack Obama have chosen a Portuguese water dog to be the first pet.
In what was one of the White House's most tightly kept secrets, the Washington Post revealed Mr Obama's daughters, 10-year-old Malia and seven-year-old Sasha, have settled on a pup named Bo.
The Post published photos of the presidential puppy meeting Mr Obama's family. See the photos here.
The black-and-white puppy is a gift from Senator Ted Kennedy. Bo is scheduled to make his big debut to the American public early next week.
Mr Obama's daughters chose the name Bo because first lady Michelle Obama's father was nicknamed Diddley, the newspaper reported.
White House aides told The Associated Press that the office of the first lady arranged an exclusive deal on the dog story with the Post.
They probably already named the dog “Teddy.”
“Splash” is the sound a Delmont 88 makes when it hits the water.
If I ever get one, I’m going to name him “Oldsmobile”.
has the dog been fully vetted?
Should have named it Mary Joe.
If it has floppy ears and is neutered it will fit in perfectly in the Obama Whitehouse.
Will it go the route of Clinton's dog, Buddy?
I can’t believe Ted Kennedy actually named his Water Dogs “Splash” and “Captain Courageous”!
BTW, this is just an Hungarian Puli by another name. The net's experts say all the "water dogs" are just "water dogs" ~ the gay marriage sites tell us "all same thing GI", but I don't know what that's about eh.
This dog comes from the same breeder as the Kennedy’s. I believe it’s also a littermate to their new puppy.
Exactly what’s needed to combat somali pirates.
Hey! That Ted doesn’t have any brain damage from the tumor, after all. The Portuguee is a perfect companion for midnite swims off the bridge!
Ted named the new "Water Dog" puppy "Captain Courageous". It seems like he's poking fun at the Mary-Jo incident.
No. Too easy. I’m sitting this one out.
Once you have had a poodle.. uhh.. ahhh..
Which dog is that? Isn’t theirs black?
Figures. Knappy hair.
He’s the white sheep of the family.
And here I thought they named the dog after Uncle Joe Biden's son.
A Chesapeake is too much dog for them.
A toy poodle would be more Barack's speed.
I was thinking “Chappy” as a nickname for for “Chappaquiddick”
Or how about just “Swimmer”
He has named that dog “Honky.”
A toy poodle and a jar of peanut butter for Barry.....
If Mary Jo Kopechne had been a Portuguese Water Dog, Senator Boozebag might have been POTUS.
“Negligent homicide is a criminal charge brought against people who, through criminal negligence, allow others to die.
Negligent Homicide is a lesser included offense to first and second degree murder, in the sense that someone guilty of this offense can expect a more lenient sentence, often with imprisonment time comparable to manslaughter. U.S. states all define negligent homicide by statute. In some, the offense includes the killing of another while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.”
Between “Splash” and “Captain Courageous” I’d say Teddy is suffering from the OJ mentality of mocking your victim. Ain’t nothing courageous about leaving your girl to die after the big splash. If I were part of Mary Jo’s family I don’t know how I would have kept myself from taking the law into my own hands by now.
The Muslim community isn’t going to be happy. This can be used to alienate him from those 99%+ in the Muslim world who believe he is a Muslim and is tricking the infidel Christian and Jews. Obama is one confused individual.
A Water Dog is a must in case you take a drive with Teddy the Drunk around Chappaquidick.
For once Kennedy is a real subject matter expert.
If Teddy had a retriever, how different things would be.
For a tightly kept secret the fact that the Obamas were getting a Portugese water dog was announced months ago. They decided on that breed because one of the girls is allergic to dogs, and the Portugese water dog does not shed, hence no dander to deal with. I remember reading about this decision previously. If this is the way they are keeping secrets...tightly kept ones at that...they didn't do a very good job of it.
Or did you mean the Obamas' new pet.
They may believe that, but Obama's "religion" for the past 20+ years has been "Black Liberation Theology".
For all you'll ever need or want to know about
Wright's "Black Liberation Theology",
see my FR Home page:
(see Section 4)
Same must hold for the 'other' end. But that's true for lots of dogs.
“I am proud to endorse the Portuguese water dog as the next First Dog of the United States,” Senator Kennedy said. “They have a can do and hopeful spirit. They are smart. They are resilient. They are determined. They are optimistic. And they are tireless. Sounds like a perfect fit for the Obama Family and the Obama Administration.”
All the discussion about the choice of pet sounds awfully like a refined conversation about the merits of different brands sources of Brie or which is the most appropriate out of 17000 variations of Chardonnay goes best with truffles flambeau in midafternoon.
IN SONG, THE ULTIMATE YOUTUBE MOCKING OF TEDDY
