Obama calls Havanese a "girlie" dog
Barbara Walters tried to urge Barack Obama to consider a Havanese as a pet. She showed him a photo of her Havanese Cha Cha.
Unfortunately, Obama rejected the Havanese as ""girlie dog."
Partial transcript follows:
We're getting more advice about this than my economic policy." Barack laughs during his interview with Barbara Walters, which aired tonight at 10 p.m. EST on ABC. "No doubt about it."
Given the amount of attention the new presidential pup has generated, we're not entirely sure Barack was joking.
The legendary newswoman went a step further and sent a picture of her Havanese dog, Cha-cha, to Michelle Obama.
"Cha-cha is a Havanese and a very perfect dog," Barbara gushed to the presidential pair.
Barack, amused: Cha Cha?
Barbara: Cha-Cha is a dog, he's a Havanese...his real name is Cha-cha-cha.
Cha-cha-cha, the beloved Havanese of
Barbara Walters. She's a workaholic, just
like her mom. Maybe she's penning a
tell-all book? Oh wait. Barbara already
did that.Barack: What's a Havanese?
Barbara explained it's like a "little terrier...non-allergenic and the sweetest dogs in the world."
Barack joked and said it sounded like a "little yappy dog." Michelle, sitting beside him wearing a chic, black and white dress, chides her husband. "Don't criticize," she says. Barack dismisses the notion of getting a pet that sounds like a lap dog and a "girly dog."
"We're going to get a big, rambunctious dog," the president-elect declared, holding his hands out widely.
