Former Vice President Dick Cheney recounts an amusing tale in his soon-to-be released autobiography about how his dog, Dave, was banned from the main lodge at Camp David for attacking the presidents dog, Barney.
A source provided The Daily Caller with a copy of the passage in Cheneys book, In My Time.
In the text, Cheney writes that Dave, his one-hundred-pound yellow Labrador, often joined him on trips to Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland.
But Dave got himself into some trouble one particular morning when Cheney brought him along to breakfast at Laurel, the lodge where most official meals and meetings take place.
No sooner had we walked inside did Dave catch sight of the presidents dog Barney, Cheney writes. A hot pursuit then ensued.

Even the most important dogs in the nation can havee their differences.
Another DOG story I received in an email:
How could this be??
At the time Bo was acquired, thought I heard the girls had full responsibility for caring for him. Over $100,000 for someone else to care for him? A separate jet for him and his care taker? Air Force One not large enough?
BO’S VACATION IN MAINE
I guess since they had to swallow their pride and use the Gulfstream there just wasn’t enough room for the dog and one other person on Air Force One.
Did you know that President Barack Hussein Obama flew Bo, their dog, in on a separate smaller jet to Maine for their vacation? I wonder if that sets well with all the unemployed, hurting, U S citizens who can’t afford food, but we can pay for this.
The above is true. I Googled “Bo the dog flying to Maine “ and got 76,700 references verifying this.
Michelle Malkin: Just Plane Crazy: Obama’s Dog Flies to Vacation on Separate Jet.
The Obamas arrived at their vacation spot in Maine , and the local paper, the Morning Sentinel, described the scene:
The president was the first to walk onto the tarmac, dressed casually in a pale blue Oxford shirt and khakis. A few minutes later, the first lady, dressed in black caprice, a tank-top and sandals, walked onto the runway. Shortly afterward, Malia and Sasha joined their parents.
Baldacci and his wife, Karen, presented the family with gift bags full of Maine-made goodies, including baskets made by the Passamaquoddy Tribe, popcorn from Little Lad’s Bakery in East Corinth , iconic L.L. Bean bags, University of Maine ice hockey hats, and an assortment of other Maine foods and books. Karen Baldacci said the bags for Malia and Sasha contained one loon toy and one chickadee toy that sound their natural calls.
Arriving in a small jet before the Obama’s was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U S Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci. The president, who said the rest of us are going to have to sacrifice to get out of these hard economic times, let his dog fly on his own plane? Not enough room on Air Force One (a Gulfstream on this trip) for a Portuguese water dog and Reggie Love?
My dog saw this story and wants his own jet now, too.
Oh, by the way, Mr. Love, Bo’s handler, is paid $102,000 a year to take care of him.
What side of the ballot will you mark in November ? This man is taking the nation for every cent he can and then some.
Two alphas need to either be separated or allowed to work it out. Personally, I think Barney was the instigator! LOL!!
Dick Cheney's dogs at Halloween. No joke.
Bush’s dog was a terrier, nasty; and probably deserved to be attacked. But Bush was top dog, so was his terrier.
My book is pre-ordered. Will be interesting.
the country would have fared better if the owner of the aggressive dog had been president
than if the wimp dog’s owner,
a 3rd generation liberal-progressive had been president.
Terriers can be pieces of work (I know... I have had several). They are smaller dogs who assume they are the size of a big dog. I know... my Cairn Terrier is the Alpha. My German Shepherd lets him think he’s the Alpha to keep the peace.
My dog can beat up your dog.
“God Loves a Terrier” from “Best in Show”:
They’ll probably take it to the pound when they move back to Chicago next year.
Me too. In fact, I’d bet on it. Barney had quite a reputation and eventually had to be kept from the public and the press.
Darth Cheney. Even his yellow lab has gravitas.
No pictures of BO - EVER!!
Not playing on the beach with the girls - not romping in the grass - NOTHING.
That poor mutt - bet he would love to go home with a Republican.
**If you want to learn a man’s character - observe how he treats his dog.**
Indeed, America needs a president with a German Shepherd, not a hand-held terrier.
