A: They're both getting new rescue dogs!
The Obamas have decided to rescue a Portuguese Water Dog sometime in April. The dog is a gift to Malia and Sasha for the long presidential campaign that forced their parents to travel frequently. They chose the PWD because the breed has a corded poodle-type coat and does not shed much...a must for Malia's allergies.
Oprah lost two cocker spaniels last year, Sophie and Solomon. Her new addition is a puppy cocker name Sadie that she and Stedman adopted this past Sunday at the PAWS shelter on Chicago.
