Important Congressional Dog Update

Important Congressional Dog Update

After watching the press hubbub over Bo Obama unfold we wondered last week if any local Pols had any cute puppies of their own. A few quick Google searches didn't turn up much, but we've had a few blanks filled in for us since then.

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz's office sent over this pic of Schultz with her two dogs. On the left is Emily, a rescue mix, and on the right is Bailey, a chocolate lab. Collectively everyone: "awwwww."

A commenter on the original post also claims that Rep. Ileana Ros Lehtinen has two dogs at home, in addition to her office dog Maya.

Ileana and Dexter have 2 dogs at home in Miami: Bard and Simba.

They adopted them from their kids when they joined the Marines and had

to constantly move about. I think they have had them for about 7 years.

Usually we write about politics in a fit of anger, but we could never be angry when there are pictures of adorable animals involved.
