From Best Friends: Petition to Urge the Obama Family to Adopt Their New Dog


To: Sen. Obama and family

If Sen. Barack Obama becomes president, he’ll instantly be faced with decisions that will affect millions of Americans. Senator Obama will also soon be making a decision that could affect millions of American dogs. It has been reported that once the election is over, win or lose, the Obamas will be looking for a new four-legged family member (much to his daughters’ delight).

We, the undersigned, urge the Obama family to rescue a homeless dog. Whether they choose to adopt a purebred or a mutt, this action would undoubtedly cause a ripple effect to the benefit of all homeless animals. In a country where millions of dogs are killed each year in shelters, adopting a dog that would not otherwise have a future is a winning choice. Taking a stand by choosing to save a life would set an example of the highest standard.

our new pootie is from the Utah Humane Society. his name is pecos, he's two months old, and he's progressive.

so which one of you-all is going to be the state blogger in Denver? this blog looks like a group effort.

As of today the delegation going to Denver includes Rob Miller, Jason and Craig from The SIDETRACK, Bob Aagard from The World, According To Me, Ben McAdams from Utah Pulse, Aaron Thompson, Misty Fowler from Saintless, and possibly a few others.

Although we may not be able to get everybody that is going into the convention we will have great coverage and a great group of people with us.
