First Dog Arrives Tuesday! It’s a Democrat

portuguese_pup.thumbnail.jpgThe Obamas will welcome the newest member of their household on Tuesday: A Portugese water dog, and he already has his own website.

TMZ reports that the six month old pooch, while a purebreed and not from a shelter, was still needing home since he’s a "return" –he was rejected by the original adopters and sent back to the breeders. Let’s hope it’s not for peeing indoors or chewing furniture, but a good trainer can usually resolve that…

Currently named Charlie, the six month old puppy is related to the Kennedy family’s two dogs, and will be renamed Bo a reference to guitarist Bo Diddley; Bo was also the nickname of Michelle Obama’s father.
