Michelle Obama has let word get out that the family is looking for a Portuguese water dog – preferrably a rescue (a request the First Family has made several times over) – one of the few hypo-allergenic breeds of dogs that will be acceptable in light of ten-year-old Malia’s allergies.
When’s it coming home?
April Fool’s Day, according to Sasha. Sometime in April, says the First Lady. The family still has to find that dog, and they’re still working out names. Apparently “Frank” and “Moose” have both been bandied about.
All of our family pets pre-date my daughter, so she didn’t get to help with the naming process, but I know in most families the names are a communal decision.
Did you pick before your pet came home, or did you wait to see what he or she looked like so you could gauge the name to the looks or personality? Were your kids involved in the naming process?
