As a side topic, it's nice to hear about the pets presidents have had, but a museum dedicated to it? I don't know if it is that newsworthy.

I wish I could go see it. There was also a show on Animal Planet talking about all the pets that have been at the White House.

Sounds like a fun exhibit--I'm sure it draws lots of people who may then continue along and visit other exhibits.

That would be interesting to see, the different animals these presidents were in love with and what animals made it to be a part of their family.

This is such a great educational opportunity for americans to learn about responsible pet ownership and choosing a breed that is right for their lifestyles. I am so glad that so many people are involved in a decision that we can all understand and is as important as many of the big political ones.

Somehow when a person or persons own an animal, it makes me think they are more caring and compassionate. I know this is definitely not the case a lot of the time but it seems as if it should be that way. I hope the new president's family can find a rescue dog that fit all the requirements of our country. Good luck.

I think it will be wonderful if Obama adopts his dog from the animal shelter. It would be good publicity for the shelters

There's actually a presidential pet museum already, right outside of Richmond, VA.

Also, Animal Sheltering magazine will have a story on presidential pets in the March-April 2009 issue.

I know that Poodles don't shed, but there are lots of other breed also. The Obamas already are called elitists. A poodle will not do anything for the image!!

Very cool! I know that the Obamas already said they would adopt a shelter dog. You can find many pure breeds at rescues & shelters.

I do hope Monica gets included. I didn't see any mention of her in Little Rock. She should have the same recognition that all presidential pets get.

I think it would set a good example to go to a shelter to get the first dog. Most shelters have a wide variety of breeds and of course the mutt.

Sounds like a cool exhibit. I actually think Obama would be best off to go through a rescue group instead of a shelter because they should be a great help in finding a dog that his girls are less allergic to.

Interesting. I love hearing about the former presidents and their strange pets. But seriously, I'm tired of hearing the press talk about Obama's cabinet. Talk about the first dog-that's the real news.

If President elect Obama can't find a shelter dog that fits his needs he can always go to a breed rescue group. Tibetan Terriers are hypoallergenic and great dogs as well.

I learned something new about Calvin Coolidge! Sounds like a fun exhibit. Can't wait to see what dog ends up in the White House next year. No doubt that dog will have a story.

This is a nice idea, anything that highlights pets and puts them up front in the media is a good thing, especially when it educates our next generation.

I really hope the Obama's go for a shelter dog. What a wonderful example that would send to the rest of America. I'm sure they could find a dog that would be suitable for his daughter's allergies.

I think it would be fun to visit the museum, however I hope that the entrance fee is going towards helping out animals, such as shelters, rescues, etc. After all, it's all about the animals, not the humans.
