We're not sure why...but you can visit President Bush's dog Barney at Barney.gov (those are your tax dollars at work!)
...or you can go to this kid friendly site to see all of the White House pets, http://www.whitehouse.gov/kids/pets/.
Here is a random white house (shameless plug!) :)
As far as pets that the current candidates would bring...
Senator John McCain has a herd of animals...including Sam the English springer spaniel, Coco the mutt, turtles Cuff and Link, Oreo the black and white cat, a ferret, three parakeets and a bunch of saltwater fish.(This according to an AP article from July, http://news.yahoo.com/page/election-2008-political-pulse-pets-and-politics
Senator Barack Obama does not have pets, but he promised his two daughters that they could get a puppy when he makes it to the White House. Anyone have any guesses as to what type of puppy they would get?
Governor Sarah Palin - We are not sure if she has pets or not, we know she hunts...but as far as the Internet goes, no one is sure.
Senator Joe Biden - He has a cat...we think. Anyone have any more info on this?
Does anyone know anything else about the Presidential candidates and their pets?
