Great memo and if Mr. Obama appoints you Secretary of Critter, please consider me for Undersecretary of Beagle. My dogs can complete the 61-question survey honestly and without making anyone nervous.

David–your dog looks amazing!! Clearly, our canine companions are worth more than all the lexapro, lunesta, etc. in the land. Right now I can’t finish washing the bedding b/c one of my airedale/golden mixes looks so angelic sleeping on the bunched up blanket on top of our bed. I can’t bear to disrupt her. Didn’t Harding have an airedale in the White House? Hmmmmmmm……………
