A New Pack Leader


The good people and dogs of the United States of America chose themselves a new pack leader a little while ago. His name is Bark Obama....or is it Barack? Anyway, Tim got out his book Dreams from My Father from the library. (I don't know why but they won't let dogs take out books. I guess we like to chew things sometimes.) It is about his childhood until about his late twenties. It is very well written and insightful. I think he will be an excellent pack leader. He is intelligent, compassionate and he thinks about the whole pack from every perspective. I heard just after he was elected that he was going to let a dog elect him. He wanted to get a pound dog but he or someone in his family is allergic so they needed a hypoallergenic dog. As he said they probably needed a pure breed for this reason and that "pound dogs are usually mutts, like me." I too am a mutt.

You are a very beautiful mutt though! They will probably end up with a Labradoodle or a Cockapoo or something and both are just posh words for mutt anyway! :o)

Oh, I have that book too! I haven't finished reading it, but I also thought it was beautifully and intelligently written.

I tend to favor mutts, and I am one myself.
