Only a matter of time before Bo Obama “gets” that he’s “famous” and starts acting vain and entitled like Stump the Sussex spaniel who won Westminster’s Best in Show this year, Stump’s owner tells the New York Times.

Also in the article, in today’s Thursday Styles:

During the George W. Bush presidency, Barney the Scottish terrier had his own Web page on whitehouse.gov… and showed his gratitude by biting a Reuters reporter during the administration’s waning days.

Who’s acting entitled now? Why should Barney have shown any particular “gratitude” toward reporters — from Reuters or otherwise? (Unless…that Shocking Barney Story that never saw the light of day?)
