US President-elect Barack Obama is still working on the make-up of his cabinet. A far more important decision - for his daughters at least - will be choosing the puppy that accompanies the new First Family to the White House.According to Tamar Geller, a California-based celebrity dog "life coach" (yes, really!!), things may not be rosy in the new Messiah’s White House:
"We need to make sure that the dog is not afraid of loud noises because he may hear loud arguments in the Oval Office, and he mustn't be afraid of people with beards and turbans and so on because he is going to meet a lot of foreign dignitaries."Say it ain’t so, Tamara! Surely Obama will simply charm all comers…?
The priority, she says, is that the pet the Obamas pick is comfortable with children and impeccably behaved at all times, particularly with visitors.Oh, yeah. I’m imagining it right now… ;)
"Can you imagine the dog jumping on Putin, or lifting his leg and peeing on the curtains, or nipping at Gordon Brown?" she says.
