On the day of his Inauguration, President Obama announced to his two daughters, Sasha and Malia, and the entire world that the girls had earned their new puppy that would be joining them in the White House.

After that moment, dog lovers around the nation began to gossip about which breed the First Family might choose. The choices were narrowed down to two breeds in January: the Labradoodle or the Portuguese Water Dog. This month, it was announced that the final choice was the Portuguese Water Dog.

This week, Elena Gretch, pet expert of It's a Dog's Life and proud owner of two Portuguese Water Dogs, appeared on PIX11 Morning News to discuss the First Family's choice.
