I understand why there is a concern about which dog the Obama family gets and how it will influence the public. And hopefully they do opt to adopt a shelter dog. From what I've read, it does seem that they want to do that but they have to consider their daughter's allergies. I'm not sure getting a cat would be the answer as a cat's dander gets spread all over them when they lick themselves. So why can't we just praise their intentions and realize that their choice isn't solely because of a commercial but out of concern for their daughter's?
