The race is on!
The Obama administration is taking its own sweet time keeping the most important campaign promise: getting the girls a puppy.
Because one of the girls has allergies, they have decided to get a Portuguese Water Dog, pictured here. Because the breed is half dog and half muppet, the fur is hypoallergenic. (Part of the last sentence is not actually true.)
The girls want to name the dog either Frank or Moose. Ms. Obama doesn't think those are proper dog names, but I strongly disagree. Any size dog can be called Moose, and as long as you don't already have a child or close family friend named Frank, any dog will be happy to be called Frank.
The question is: Which will be the first to make it to Washington? The Obama dog or Senator Al Franken.
Remember: This is an exhibition, not a competition. Please no wagering.
