Dog-companies weigh in on Obama's promise

"Sasha and Malia ... I love you both more than you can imagine. And you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us the new White House." Obama said it. Now dog-loving companies are putting a paw in.

The Pedigree pups are writing direct letters.
Text: Dear President-Elect Obama, We'd love to help you fulfil your first campaign promise. We are thrilled that you are celebrating your victory by adopting a dog into your family. We think you'll find that shelter dogs are among the most loyal, loving and special dogs in the world. And no dog is more in need of a little hope. You can find a great dog and learn more about responsible adoption at
And for whomever the new First Family will choose, Milkbone's got the goods all promised and ready. Free bones.
"Milk-Bone, the iconic pet snack brand that is celebrating its 100th anniversary by recognizing Milk-Bone Moments, wishes to congratulate the new first family on the historic moment that occurred Tuesday night and their commitment to future pet parenthood by offering to supply the family with a LIFETIME supply of Milk-Bone dog biscuits. The Milk-Bone brand takes an oath to keep the presidential pooch-elect stocked with as many dog biscuits as he or she could wish for!"
Barney got the shaft. But then again so did Buddy.

Woof. Woof.

My dog Buster gets the shaft too. Hey Milkbones executives, I have a dog that actually exists in my home. I've lost work in the last few months. I cannot afford Milkbones any more. If I happen to be able to afford them in the near future, will the price be bigger because I have to pay for Mr. Obama's free Milkbones?
