Rescue Dog in the White House?

During an interview with Access Hollywood, Barack and Michelle Obama said they promised their daughters that win or lose the race for the White House, the family will be adopting a dog. Not ones to miss an important learning opportunity on the big stage, the Best Friends Animal Society is encouraging the maybe-future-First Family to adopt their new fur buddy from a shelter or rescue -- through a website (obamafamilydog.com) and a petition. Politics aside, you gotta love the idea of a once-surrendered, maybe neglected or even stray, mutt curled up with his or her forever family in the Lincoln bedroom. Now, that's the American Dream.

I would LOVE to see a mixed breed, shelter-dog in the White House! I think Barack Obama and his family could do a lot to raise awareness if they took the opportunity to adopt a dog.
