Finding the perfect pooch for the President-elect

It’s not time to take a sigh of relief yet because the fun is not over. In fact, it is just beginning, so buckle your seat belts and enjoy the ride of finding the Commander’s Companion alongside your favorite fortune teller (me). The best part of any day is coming home to a wagging tail so deciding which companion will be in the White House is always difficult for a First Family. The Trump’s along with their First Dog will be on Pennsylvania Avenue soon, so which lucky breed will be the “it” dog for the next four years or maybe more if the Trumpers are lucky.
Donald Trump will want to have a companion who is similar to him, I would think. Because of this, I have decided his First Dog should be one of these:
1. Chorkie – The Chorkie is part Chihuahua and part Yorkshire Terrier, and this breed is completely unique. The Chorkie is stubborn and persistent just like Trump. Neither the Chorkie nor Donald Trump understands when enough is enough. Chorkies love to “yap.” I am uncertain as to whom would “yap” the most in this feisty friendship: Donald or the Chorkie. As with Donald, the Chorkie is fiery and not afraid to be vocal. The Chorkie does not like children and neither does the Donald.
2. Dandie Dinmont Terrier – A Dandie Dinmont Terrier is a small breed of dog in the terrier family. The breed has a distinctive “top-knot” of hair on its head. This “top-knot” reminds me of Donald’s hair, so it would be the perfect dog for Trump. This terrier is known for being a gentleman in the dog world because this breed tends to be soft spoken, so Donald could learn a thing or two from this pup.
3. Bloodhound – The Bloodhound is known as investigating with their magnificent nose. Because Donald is determined to hunt down those he finds dangerous, this dog is a great fit for him and for his goals in office. When the Bloodhound picks up a scent, they are stubborn to let it go and won’t listen to reason. This sounds a little familiar to the personality of Donald.
4. Beauceron – The Beauceron appeals to Donald Trump’s sensitive business side. This bread is intelligent and versatile in tasks involving learning, memory and reasoning. This bread is extremely loyal just like Donald. He wants to make America great again, so maybe he just needs a great companion to help him along the way.
5. Minature Bull Terrier – The Minature Bull Terrier is comical and mischievous. Everyone won’t just be laughing at this dog during his presidential term. This breed is stubborn and needs to be trained with a firm hand. It’s hard to train a dog when the owner needs some work, but I’m sure Melania can do it.
Although these options for the First Dog are all great, only one dog can become the First Dog. They all have one thing in common: they will be the one who loves the Commander when some Americans may not. After all, love is wet noses, sloppy kisses and wagging tails. So, the First Dog will truly be a companion of love and laughter for the First Family and America, as well.
