Obama: New dog could be 'mutt like me'

(CNN) – In his first press conference since winning the race to the White House, President-elect Barack Obama addressed a pressing question: who is going to be the first dog?
Obama told a group of reporters in Chicago on Friday that since his 10-year-old daughter, Malia, is allergic, the Obama family is looking for a hypoallergenic breed. But Obama also said the family wants to adopt one from a shelter.
“There are a number of breeds that are hypoallergenic, but on the other hand our preference is to get a shelter dog, but obviously, a lot of the shelter dogs are mutts like me,” Obama said. “So, whether we are going to be able to balance those two things I think is a pressing issue on the Obama household.”
É bonito. Infelizmente na América também há muitos animais de raça abandonados nos canis. Ficamos à espera de ver que espécie de cão vai entrar na Casa Branca. Não esperemos, no entanto, que Obama dê muita atenção aos problemas dos animais.
Afinal, ele é só um rafeiro como nós.
