Obama girls to get their puppy: a Portuguese water dog

It's official. The Obama girls are finally getting their puppy. The new First Dog will be a medium-sized, hypoallergenic Portuguese water dog like the little guy pictured here.

According to CNN, "Sen. Ted Kennedy, who owns two Portuguese water dogs, had lobbied the first family to choose the breed." So the doggie torch is being passed, too?

The White House pup has not yet been chosen, so of course, he or she has no name. Michelle Obama told People Magazine that "Frank" and "Moose" are among the names the kids have been throwing around. Just as long as they don't call it "Joe."
