Girly Dog

This is an excerpt from an interview of Obama by Barbara Walters, which aired tonight. Reportedly, Walters sent a photo of her pet, a Havanese dog named Cha Cha Cha, to the Obamas, who are still looking for a pet dog.

Obama: “Cha Cha?”

Bawbwa: “It’s short for Cha Cha Cha.”

O: “What is a Havanese?”

B: “It’s like a little terrier and they’re non-allergenic and they’re the sweetest dogs..”

O: [Face suddenly changes.] “It’s like a little yappy dog?”

Michelle: “Don’t criticize.”

O: “It, like, sits in your lap and things?”

M: “It’s a cute dog.”

O: “It sounds kinda like a girly dog.”

M: “We’re girls. We have a houseful of girls.”

O [with hand gestures]: “We’re going to have a big rambunctious dog, of some sort.”


O: “We’re getting more advice about this [what kind of dog to get] than my economic policies. No doubt about it.”
