It is a law that the president HAS to have a dog?

Have any of you ever heard this?

  • I've never heard of a law enforcing a president to have a dog. I've never looked into it either, but I somehow doubt that'd be true.

    Some of the posters to this question obviously lack the skill to answer a question objectively, by the way. There's no need to bring your personal agenda into this, just answer the question and then move on.

  • Clinton's had a cat. I think they eventually got a dog later but not because they had to. Socks died a few weeks ago :(

  • I don't think it's a law...more of a tradition. But some of them already have pets before they are elected, so they just bring the pets with them.

    Yeah, because no chance they just want a dog to have dog...or maybe the millions and millions of pet owners in this country have dogs because they want to be like the Kennedys as well.

  • I thought Malia was ALLERGIC to dogs! I guess they'll just give her allergy shots so they can look like the all American family though...I can just her the first mom in chief saying "suck it up honey, it's what the American people want!"

  • WOW! You guys can turn anything into a reason to hate Obama...

    They're looking for a hypoallergenic dog, that's why it's taking so long. She's allergic to fur not hair. Don't you know anything about dogs?

  • ""Image...it's ALLLLLL about image! ""

    Then millions upon millions of people in this nation must be all about 'image' who have dogs for pets....if I am following your 'logic' (?)!
