Please start paying attention!

I've been feeling rather optimistic about the political scene. The President-elect seemed to be following through on his promise to unite the country. His choices for advisors seemed rather well-considered, balanced and experienced.
Then I saw him yesterday on This Week with George Stephanopoulos and became really worried about the advice the President-elect is getting.
A Labradoodle or a Portuguese Water Hound?
A Labradoodle is a mutt, not a breed.
And it's Portuguese Water Dog, not hound.
So - are his information sources wrong? or was he just not paying attention?
We actually decided a long time ago that the perfect Obama pup would be the Portie. We can call them that - some of our best friends have Porties. We can put him in touch with Portuguese Water Dog Rescue - anyone can find them here: If they get a rescue - everybody's happy. The Obamas get the dog they want and the warm, fuzzies because they "saved" a dog. Win-Win-Win!
Generally speaking, the world would be a much better and more organized place if everyone would listen to me.
