Hungry Hawk Feasts on Foul

The First Dog

So on the tail end of Obama's interview on ABC News' This Week with George Stephanopoulos, I probably joined 25% of America in trying to find out what a Portuguese Water Hound looks like exactly. Turns out it was nothing like what I expected.

From Wikipedia:
"Portuguese Water Dogs (PWD) are a breed of water dog similar to poodles. Portuguese Water Dogs once existed all along Portugal's coast, where they were taught to herd fish into fishermen's nets, to retrieve lost tackle or broken nets, and to act as couriers from ship to ship, or ship to shore. Portuguese Water Dogs rode in bobbing fishing trawlers as they worked their way from the warm Atlantic waters of Portugal to the frigid fishing waters off the coast of Iceland where the fleets caught codfish to bring home."

Any ideas for a name for the First Dog?
