The Obamas’s Dog

Bernie says the Obama family’s getting a Portuguese water dog. Great idea! I met one once. This was the time Bernie and I went to San Diego on a case. I surfed! But maybe I’ll get into that later. The point is this Portuguese water dog was there, too. What a swimmer she was! Not quite as good as me, as I proved by catching up with her and herding her back to the beach, where I picked up a very special whiff while we were shaking off. Then came a few exciting moments that are maybe a story for another time, or never. Her name was Daisy.

As for names, I hear the Obamas are kicking around “Frank” and “Moose.” Both great names. I know a Frank, this huge dude, part Rotweiler, part pit bull, who guards a used-tire place on one of the worst streets in town. Goes off for no reason, but we worked out an arrangement, an arrangement that led to both of us visiting the vet later that day. Also know a Moose – she’s the tiniest miniature poodle I’ve ever seen. So either name is fine, Obamas. You can’t go wrong!

    Hey Chet.

    I'm hoping they go through a rescue organization to get their water dog. Those guys need homes and it's the greener thing to do. So to speak.
