City Health Director Pamela Rice Walker has a message for president-elect Barack Obama: We have your dog, sir.
Director Walker sent my office a note this morning offering “a neutered, male, black Standard Poodle” (see photo) from the City’s animal shelter to the canine-seeking president and his allergic daughters. Pam notes that the hypoallergenic dog was surrendered by his owner “reason unknown” and is already micro-chipped.
I have passed the information along.
Should the Obamas go in a different direction, you might think about adopting a First Dog of your own. The shelter’s number is (314) 353-5838.
