Shortly after winning the election, I promised my daughters we would get a dog after
we moved into the White House. We felt it was important to adopt a dog who needed a home,
rather than purchase a new puppy.
We launched a nationwide search for the perfect dog for our situation. When we heard about the plight of the dog that had grown too big for his home in the city, we immediately made the decision. We are fortunate to live in a large house with a large lawn; perfect for this poor dog's situation.
Meet Clifford: Clifford's the best friend anyone could know. He's the greatest dog ever - I really think so! Clifford's so loyal, he's there when you call. I love Clifford, our big red dog. Clifford's so much fun - He's a friend to us all. I love Clifford our big red dog!
