Does anyone else find it slightly offensive that he named his dog “Splash”? I mean, it seems like a reference to that woman he killed, does it not?

Far less significant than the 7 cents tax someone had to pay to buy a bag of M&Ms today.

HAVE A COOL YULE!

The dog had a more worthwhile and noble existence than that murderous,fat, traitorous ,trust fund scumbag.

“Teddy...I’m not so sure about......”

I don’t expect he’ll be meeting the dog.

The dog was a loyal, and by far a more courageous soul than his owner.

Wonder how Ted felt at the moment he heard “Depart from me, I do not know you”...

Didn’t Red Ted have a couple staffers write a “children’s book” about this dog and put his name on it?

The Swimmer named his dog "Splash." Another ugly Kennedy joke reaches its sell-by date.

"RIP to Splash... the noble member of that family."

Anyone who has ever owned a dog understands the feeling of loss.

I hope the Kennedy family can find solace in knowing that Splash is in Heaven with Mary Jo now.

A Portuguese Water Dog named Splash. What a sick sense of humor the swimmer had.

This is getting a little embarrassing. I mean, I’m sure he was a great dog and all but there are hundreds of thousands of deaths annually that are much more tragic and don’t rate this type converage. I think something much more appropriate would be to conduct some old fashioned investigative journalism into the story behind Splash’s moniker and then publish a few tributes in memory of Mary Jo.
