Teddy...I'm not so sure about......
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?
Splash...........no pun intended?
Ted Kennedy the U-boat commander named his dog splash?
You cant write comedy that good...
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?
RIP to Splash... the noble member of that family.
Lets put a RHINO in Splash’ dog house.
It was, to rub peoples nose in what he got away with....I hear he is still sober...
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.
What kinda sick monkey names his dog splash after drowning his pregnant girl friend?
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.
Mary Jo Kopecne could not be reached for comment.
It wasn't Splash's dog house....It was the PEOPLE's Dog House....Oooopps. sorry, getting a little carried away there...
