President Barack Obama has confirmed in his interview with Jay Leno that the first dog “will be there shortly”.  Leno pressed Obama for information on the arrival of the dog saying

“When is the dog coming?  I keep hearing about the dog…”

Barack Obama assured Leno that the groundwork had been put in place and that the family had a trip to take and “when we get back, the dog will be in place”.  Reports until now have been that the first dog will be a Portuguese Water Dog, which Leno mistakenly referred to as a “Portuguese Waterhead”.

The President skirted around Leno’s question about the breed of the dog answering only that he thought “the girls will have a great time with” and that he “will have a lot of fun with”.  Barack Obama wrapped up this section of the interview by saying :

“They say if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog”.
