so, yeah, i'm definitely disappointed at the about-face on the president's decision to accept a dog from a breeder rather than adopt from a shelter. i imagine we all are, to some degree. i think it's kind of been done to death in the media, and honestly i'm not even bothered by that, because i do think it's a big deal. i'm not going to yammer on and on because it would be preaching to the choir, but i did want to share this article, because it's one of the more interesting ones i've read on the matter. i almost came away with the feeling that there was never a true intent to rescue from a shelter, which bums me out. meh.
