First Pooch : The Obamas Pick a Pet, Hardback Book

First Pooch : The Obamas Pick a Pet Hardback

Illustrated by Amy Bates


Throughout their father's twenty-two month campaign for president, Malia and Sasha Obama begged their parents for a dog.

Finally, when their father became the 44th president of the United States, he rewarded their patience and good behavior in his victory speech: "Malia and Sasha will get their new puppy." Would the girls choose a Foxhound like President George Washington's? Or a chocolate Labrador Retriever like the Clintons'?

Maybe a shelter dog? Finally, on February 25, 2009, they decided to look for a Portuguese Water Dog to move into the White House.

Art rendered in watercolor, gouache, and pencil.
