President-elect Barack Obama says his family has narrowed its search for a puppy, which will be a labradoodle or a Portuguese water hound, ABC News is reporting.

Obama jokingly says that finding a puppy is harder than finding a Commerce secretary.


Really?  When was the last time you brought home a puppy but had to take it back because it was under investigation in a “pay for play” scandal?

At least a Commerce secretary is housebroken.  Usually.

When puppies make a mess, some owners rub the dogs’ noses in it.  But when a Commerce secretary makes a mess — well, I guess you do the same thing.
