Breaking News: First Dog Will Join the Obamas in April!

It's the moment we've all been waiting for: Michelle Obama told People magazine that they will in fact adopt a Portuguese Water Dog at the end of April, after their Spring break vacation.It's surely exciting news for Sasha and Malia, however, the girls are still undecided on what to name their future furball. Michelle's not too fond of her daughters' initial ideas, saying:

There are names floating around and they're bad. You listen and you go – like, I think, Frank was one of them. Frank! Moose was another one of them. Moose. I said, well, what if the dog isn't a moose? Moose. I'm like, no, come on, let's work with the names a little bit.

Ha! Well, I can't wait to see this pup and hear what name the Obama family settles on. I've got a couple names swirling around in my head and I bet you do as well so let's hear them below!

My cousin has a westie named frank, and it's the perfect name for him!!! Also, I think they should have gone for a sheltie :)

Porties seem to be a great breed of dog. I wonder where they are adopting the dog? My husband and I really wanted a Portie, but had a really hard time trying to find one through a rescue. We ended up with a great dog from a local rescue, but not a low shedder like a PWD! We are keeping a lookout to hopefully adopt one in the future.

The possible names are kind of terrible, but kind of cute at the same time...
