First Dog

It seems the search for the perfect Obama dog is soon to be over! It was revealed recently that the Obama family has chosen the dog breed they are going to get. President Obama promised his daughters Sasha and Malia a puppy in his victory speech last November. So whats the breed? The Obama’s have decided on a Portuguese water dog, a dog similar to poodles. They do not shed, which is part of the reason the Obama’s are getting one, due to allergies. They are a smaller dog breed, but perfect for the president. Ted Kennedy was also for getting a Portuguese Water Dog, as he has 2 of his own. Now the Obama’s are at the fun part: name game. “Oh, the names are really bad. I don’t even want to mention it, because there are names floating around and they’re bad,” Mrs. Obama says.”You listen and you go – like, I think, Frank was one of them. Frank! Moose was another one of them. Moose. I said, well, what if the dog isn’t a moose? Moose. I’m like, no, come on, let’s work with the names a little bit.” The Obama’s will get their dog in April, after a spring break vacation. Bibliography:Yahoo NewsWikipediaGot Pets Online

    I’m happy to hear they’ve picked a dog! Great writing style! One quick thing – you used Wikipedia as a source, but that isn’t reliable, because anyone can change it into something unreliable. Great job, keep writing strongly!
