The White House Puppy
The people want to know: what kind of dog is the Obama family going to bring to the White House?
President-elect Barack Obama told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week" that the family has narrowed down their options. Obama revealed the pet will probably be a Labradoodle or a Portuguese Water Dog.

Move over Barney, there's a new dog in the presidential circle!
Vice President-elect Joe Biden has bought a six-week-old German Shepherd puppy, making good on his wife's promise that he could buy a dog if he and Barack Obama won the White House.
"[Joe] was very gracious," Pennsylvania breeder Linda Brown told People Pets. "He hugged and kissed all of the shepherds."
The puppy, which is to be named by Biden's grandchildren, will join him after being trained by dog trainer Mark Tobin -- whose dogs beefed up Joe's security on the campaign trail.
Barney the Scottish Terrier is the Bush family's precious pooch, but his cuteness is rivaled by Biden's new German Shepherd pup!
Tell "Extra" -- Which political dog is cuter?
President-elect Barack Obama promised his daughters a presidential puppy -- but is this poodle the pooch he chose to be First Dog?
That's false. Barack Obama met with author Jana Kohl and was so inspired by Kohl and her rescued pup, Baby, that he agreed to pose in this picture for her book, "A Rare Breed of Love: The True Story of Baby and the Mission She Inspired to Help Dogs Everywhere."
Obama has announced that his family plans to adopt a canine to join them in the White House, to raise awareness about the inhumanity of puppy mills -- and why they need to be shut down.
The Clintons' pup Buddy was a chocolate lab, and they also had Socks the cat. George and Laura Bush have a Scottish terrier named Miss Beazley and Nancy Reagan loved her King Charles Cavalier spaniel, Rex.
