Well, you’ve heard the news I’m sure, that the Whitehouse has a new puppy, a 6 month old Portugese WaterDog. It is a AKC recognized breed. It was chosen among a few breeds (and mixed breeds) because they are good for children with allergies. Malia and Sasha Obama named the puppy Bo.
Can Portugese Water Dog’s do agility? Absolutely! See the short video below. It is ADORABLE. Makes me want to get a PWD puppy!
Meanwhile, we’d like to encourage the presidential girls to get involved in dog agility. Portugese Water Dogs are working dogs and have lots of energy to burn. And it would be wonderful press for the growth of the sport! So how can we do this? One way we thought to do this is to donate our popular agility kit, The Agility-in-the-Bag, to the girls as a gift. It would look stunning out on the whitehouse lawn, don’t you think? (see picture to the right).
So … we’ll be mailing out the kit tomorrow. We hear that it takes a long time for federal agents to open and inspect gifts, so we are getting an early start. Hopefully it will get to them, including the book “Having Fun With Agility“which we’ve also included in the box. I’ll keep you informed if anything comes of it!
Meanwhile, does anyone else have any other ideas how we can encourage the girls to get involved in agility? Let’s pass the torch about “obamagility”!
