It’s been a while since we’ve mentioned the first puppy to be. And no, it’s not Baby, the dog shown above.

    The Portuguese Water Dog are wonderful pets, their curly hairs are so handsome and they are good for allergic people. A good choice for the Obama family, now some questions remain: male or female, how will they call it?
