Eddie is still basking in the celebrity afterglow of being featured on the Pet Lovers for Obama Facebook page yesterday. His photo has racked up 1,290 likes, 52 comments, and counting!
He liked his “Barack’s Best Friend” leash so much that he chewed right through it, but I’m ordering a replacement ($15) on the Obama 2012 website, which offers a variety of campaign-themed pet accessories. Cat lovers are welcomed into Obama’s big tent with collars that say, “I meow for Michelle.”
We’re still hoping to catch sight of another Cambridge celebrity dog, Elizabeth Warren’s golden retriever Otis, who is said to model his behavior on Teddy Roosevelt’s credo (“speak softly and carry a big stick”).
