latimes ^

Posted on 11/06/2008 3:05:48 PM PST by JoeProBono

Barney the first dog bit a White House reporter today.

Apparently it wasn't the first time. Jon Decker, a political reporter for Reuters, had just finished a live shot for MSNBC at 10:35 a.m. when he spotted Barney and his handler on a walk. He bent down to pet him. Look out.

"Maybe Barney, a Scottish terrier, was fed up with liberal media bias. Maybe he was unhappy with how ungrateful Americans seem to be for President Bush's leadership. Or maybe he was just snarling to get out of there."

Then Barney was rushed to the vet for an emergency rabies shot.

"He bent down to pet him."

Serves him right, assuming it's okay to touch the "B" man. He should have asked permission first.

This is a natural reaction.

Terriers were bred to control rats, mice, foxes and other vermin.

Of course, he hates the press.

"What a smart dog Barney is. Barney for President in 2012:"

If the Republicans had let Barney run, we might have won. And Barney's interview with Katie Couric would have been worth watching.

Of course! You don't just go up to a dog and "get in its face". I taught my daughter that when she was nine.

Dogs are animals with great insight. I had trained my dog to bite any NY Yankee fans who wander onto my tract of land, but biting liberals comes natural to him.

That Barney is the "Congressional" dog, not the "White House" dog.

Poor Barney. He will need to get some shots for that. Idiot reporter. I heard the audio on the Schnitt show earlier. I am pretty sure that Barney was growling before the bite. Most dogs do warn first and well if you are stupid enough to keep your fingers in front of his teeth....

Typical moron that does not know how to act around dogs. He just quickly walked up, quickly bends down and sticks his hand in the dogs face.

I'd bite him too.
