What a hasty generalization to make, and a stupid one at that. I so wish you were the one petting Barney, after all....,

I doubt it very much. The Bush family are big dog lovers and Laura Bush and I remember when she headed a luncheon in Austin some years ago when I lived there for Kinky Friedmans Utopia Ranch....kicked myself for not coughing up the $$$ to attend.

You never try to pet a dog that obviously isn't in a very agreeable mood. Let it come to you, the reporter was kind of dumb. But the way the media's gone after his master, old Barney did good and earned a treat.
I have a mental picture of Barak Obama showing off the new First Family dog with it tearing at his pants leg and growling. "Down Dinkums, down!"

I think Barney is so cute! I love terriers and have one myself. The reporter should not have reached out like he did, the dog was probably not enjoying all the people and lights around him. I wouldn't call the guy an idiot though and from what I heard he had a good sense of humor about it and is not going to sue.
