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.
