Sally - 232158 Papillion, NE 8/26/2013 7:21:56 AM SallyI have mixed emotions about adopting a rescue dog or puppy mill puppy, as opposed to a pure bred. Of course both situations have many pro's & con's. This is definitely a "hot topic". I have had over 16 dogs in my 65 years. Mostly pure bred, a Heinz 57 or 2. However, every single dog was chosen because that particular breed would fit the needs of our family AT THAT POINT IN OUR LIVES. Something I know was paramount in the Obama's choosing a hypo-allergenic breed. I read the article, and the wonderful "therapy dog" skills that Sunny has, makes her a perfect choice for the President and his family.
