What pets do the 2008 presidential candidates have?

Our question this week was:

Dr. Debra – what pets do all of the 2008 presidential candidates have? Do you know?

Joey H.

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You asked what pets our presidential candidates have. This is my understanding.

  • Barack Obama – has no pets, but has promised his children a dog.
  • John McCain – Sam the English Springer spaniel, Coco the mutt, turtles named Cuff and Link, Oreo the black and white cat, a ferret, three parakeets and 13 saltwater fish.
  • Sarah Palin – I’m not sure.
  • Joe Biden – has no pets.

    Do any of you know for sure what pets Sarah Palin has? Email us at editors@petplace.com.

    P.S. we have a couple fun polls – if you have a minute – fill it out!

    If John McCain were a dog….what breed would he be?

    If Barak Obama were a dog….what breed would he be?
