FAIL: Obama White House Pup Coming From A Kennel?

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

If true, this is some severely disappointing news. TMZ is reporting that the Obama family White House dog will arrive this coming Tuesday. But unlike all of the reassurances these past few months from President Obama that the dog would be rescued from a shelter, it now appears that it will come from a breeding kennel in Texas. From the article,

The pooch will make its grand entrance on Tuesday, and it’s coming from a prominent Texas kennel, with the help of Senator Ted Kennedy’s family. The black dog — a male — is approximately six months old. We’ve learned it was bred at the kennel and sold to someone who gave it back. The kennel is now “re-homing” the dog to the Obamas. The dog was named Charlie, but the Obamas will rename it.

Now here’s where the Kennedys come into play. The kennel has sold the Kennedys three Portuguese Water Dogs in the past, all from the same lineage. The dog the Obamas will be getting is from the same lineage as the Kennedy dogs. The Kennedy family will be presenting the new dog to the Obamas, but it’s really coming from the kennel.

Now, we’re taking this news as a half-truth since a.) it originated on TMZ and b.) nobody else has confirmed any of this. But seriously, if this is the Obama family’s definition of a shelter dog, then we’ve been having our chain yanked the entire time. More details as we get ’em.

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
