As you’ve no doubt heard, Barack Obama said in his victory speech Tuesday that his daughters had “earned the new puppy that’s coming with us to the White House.”

The Obamas told Entertainment Tonight on Sept. 30 they planned to adopt a “rescue dog,” and we hope they’ll keep that promise. (Of course, readers of this blog were nominating dogs for the Obamas back in July!)

Tuesday’s election brought other good news for animals as well.

All of these represent incredible advances in animal welfare. Now let’s just hope the Obamas adopt a shelter dog — that would really be the Change We Need in the lives of homeless pets everywhere!
