Obama Family Look Fayette PA Way for Labradoodle

well, come on President Barack Obama, First Lady Michele Obama at least give the puppy photographs and offer from a Fayette County Pennsylvania child (and family) a good look!

Seriously, you have to think, the puppy, was named Vegas and was born within the Thanksgiving season! And the mom's name couldn't be any more fitting. Hillary!

It's as if it was meant to be.

Pennsylvania Boy Offers Puppy to Obama Family

Update from Tribune-Review

Will Obamas take chance on Vegas?

As the Obamas settle into their new home in the White House, a Fayette County fourth-grader is awaiting word on whether they might take him up on his offer of a free puppy.

On Tuesday, 9-year-old Zack Shiley of Farmington had county commissioners Vincent Zapotosky and Vincent Vicites deliver a letter to Obama staffers in which he offers to give Malia Obama his 7-week old puppy, Vegas. The commissioners were in Washington for the presidential inauguration.

President Obama might choose a low-shedding labradoodle -- part Labrador, part poodle -- for his daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7. Malia is allergic to pet dander.


During their trip to witness the historic inauguration of Barack Obama, two Fayette County commissioners will deliver a letter that could potentially change the life of the new president and the first family.

The inauguration of Obama as the 44th president will take place today, and commissioners Vincent A. Vicites and Vincent Zapotosky left Monday to head to Washington, D.C.

In their possession will be a letter from Zachary William Shiley to Malia Obama, the oldest daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama.

Shiley, a fourth-grade student at Wharton Elementary School in Farmington, is offering a 6-week-old female labradoodle puppy to the first family.

The puppy, born Nov. 26, was the only offspring that survived the litter of 11-year-old Hillary, a chocolate Labrador and 1-year-old Bullet, a black labradoodle.

When Barack Obama won the presidential election in November, he promised his daughters Malia and Sasha a new puppy when they move into the White House.

Since that time, the Obamas have narrowed their search to the breeds of Portuguese water dog or labradoodle.
