Putin apparently named his dog after Connie Rice because he thought she was a "black bitch"

Well, like the saying goes, if you want a friend in Washington DC, get a dog.Big smile
 
I think the tradition of the "presidential dog" began with FDR and "Fallah".  Nixon had "Checkers", don't remember Ike's, but he had one.  I believe there was only one Pres. that had a cat.

Cat people like the misterious and fickle side of life; dog persons like the stable and reliable such.
One can wonder what made Lincoln marry Mary Todd and have a cat...what deep interest toward the changing moon and vagrant souls was deeply seated the ne heart of this man with serious face and tragic eyes.

We humans are still a mystery to ourselves.

I think George Washington had a number of canine companions, including Sweet Lips, Tipsy, Tipler, Cloe, Searcher, Drunkard, Mopsey, Pilot, Tartar, Jupitar, Trueman, Truelove, Juno, Duchess, Ragman, Countess, Lady, Rover, Vulcan, Singer, Must, Tival, Forrester, Captain, and Madam Moose.

I've read something like this before, didn't buy it then anymore than now.  Folks are forever trying to catagorize people by their pets.  All it takes to wash that out is someone who has both cats and dogs. 
I've always had at least one dog, usually 2.  Collies mainly.  But on and off we would have a cat single us out, and move in.  Until recently we never had more than one cat, due to having to "rescue" a feral, we now have 2.  We are neither "cat or dog people".  We like and understand animals.
 
When the kids were still home, we had a zoo, ferrets, iguanas, even a crippled Mallard named Fred.

Both cats and dogs  persons need the both parts. Different animals give us different stuff, just like different people do. I have had  cats and dogs, and both, in different periods of my life, and really depending of what I need in the moment. Dogs give a strong bond, are always there for you, and are very loyal; while cats have their own lives, and from time to time stop to look in one's soul with their big Hekatic eyes. Big difference in the character of the both animals, IMHO.

It's a completely different experience to have a cat and a dog, at least this is what I got out of it; as much as the difference between an understandng, faightful, and devoted spouse /dog/; and a feral, seducing, fickle and vagrant lover /cat/. Dogs had always been there for me, cats been with me for themselves. What did I prefer to have at the moment is what I needed at that particular moment, hence my choice of one or another.

But then, it may be just me, I tend to overthink everythingDead.

Me thinks Obama's pet is a drone, he operates from the White House basement, sipping homebrew beer, shooting up Afghani women and children.
