Obamas’ New $2,300 Dog Bred Via Frozen Sperm

First we have this from Breitbart:

Humane Society Questions New WH Puppy: ‘Why Not A Rescue Dog?’

By Larry O’Connor | August 21, 2013

When it came time to pick a little puppy pal for White House dog, Bo, the Obama family seems to have made the politically incorrect choice of purchasing a pure-bred instead of adopting a rescue dog from one of the many shelters that become the last stop for millions of dogs before they are euthanized.

Wayne Pacelle, president of The Humane Society of the United States, took to his blog Tuesday to point out that the Obama’s have not been very forthcoming about new pup Sunny’s origins other than to note that the pup came from Michigan. Considering it is pretty rare to find a pure-bred like Sunny in an animal shelter, it’s a good bet that the pup is not a rescue dog.

Pacelle writes: "As we always say in such circumstances, we hope the Obamas considered adoption or rescue as the first choice in obtaining a pet."

Lest we forget, in his first press conference as President-elect, Obama was questioned by reporters as to which breed of dog the family was looking to acquire. Obama famously replied, "Our preference would be to get a shelter dog, but, obviously, a lot of shelter dogs are mutts like me."

But it turns out that he doesn’t like shelter dogs so much, after all.

In a weird example of paying for an indulgence for making the politically incorrect choice, Pacelle reveals that the Obama’s made a donation to the Humane Society "in Sunny’s name."

The Obamas were careful to point this out on the White House website, when they announced their new dog.

And now have more background on this story, via the UK’s Daily Mail:

Revealed: How the Obamas came to buy their new $2,300 dog Sunny – and how she was ‘born from frozen sperm’

By Daniel Bates | 21 August 2013

Sunny the Portuguese water dog – the latest addition to the Obama family – was bought from a breeder in Michigan for around $2,300 and seems have been born though frozen sperm, MailOnline can reveal today…

We suspect having been born via frozen sperm would jack up the estimated price even more.

MailOnline tracked down Sunny’s birthplace to Amy Lane in Attica, Michigan. Mrs Lane runs a farm and a Portuguese puppy breeding center there called Allegiance PWDs…

So the Obamas’ new dog is from Michigan. Where Detroit currently has 50,000 strays dying on the street. Clearly the Obamas prefer the 1 percenters when it comes to dogs. And the 99 percent can starve.

But that’s all right. The Obamas have assured us that they made a donation to the DC humane society. it’s like buying a ‘carbon credit.’ Or an ‘indulgence’ for their sin.

The litter were born to father Henry and mother Slipper. Trouble is Henry was not actually around for the conception. He died in 2010, and his frozen sperm was used to impregnate Slipper – described as having a ‘tremendous headpiece’.

On her website, Mrs Lane said of Henry: ‘Henry was a fantastic PWD who passed away on June 12, 2010.  This breeding was made possible by frozen semen from the year 2000..

The White House has been surprisingly reluctant to give details about their purchase of Sunny, compared to the arrival of Bo, whose breeder was publicly identified…

Gee, we wonder why.

    Obama probably used taxpayer money to pay for sperm-cicle pup, and the “donation” to the humane society. I’d like to see receipts.

    Maybe pure-bred Portugese Water Dogs taste better than mutts.
