Here's your President-elect, a self-described "mutt," and his friend, Baby.
This photo was taken in 2005; it's one of several portraits taken for a five-hanky book called A Rare Breed of Love: The True Story of Baby and the Mission She Inspired to Help Dogs Everywhere.
Baby was adopted by Jana Kohl, an angel who lives in Chicago. (Jana's website is here: http://www.ararebreedoflove.com/.)
America, these are the kind of people and puppies who make you a great nation.
Jaliya ... and my feline friends Roo, Binky, Jaliyajuji, Vida, and Aja ...
Mellow Roo, la doyenne of the household
Vida, the Naughtiest of Naughties
