Clinton to Replace Dead Buddy with New Dog
NewsMax ^ | March 31, 2002 | Newsmax Staff

Ex-President Bill Clinton has told friends that he intends to replace his dog Buddy, who was tragically run over in January while running loose near the former first family's Chappaqua, N.Y., mansion, with another labrador retriever from the same breeder.

During a conversation with former Texas Governor Ann Richards at a gathering at a Manhattan restaurant this week, Clinton reportedly grew morose when asked about Buddy. "But he brightened up, saying he would get a new lab in June from the late Buddy's breeder," reports gossip columnist Liz Smith.

The revelation came as the president announced he was "sprucing up" his image, Smith said.

In February, Clinton told a Woodbury, New York audience that he liked living in tony Westchester, N.Y. because it reminded him of the Arkansas of his youth.

"I love living in Westchester County. I like living in a little town again where I know all my neighbors."

Then, turning maudlin, Clinton added, "I like it [but] I miss my dog ... I miss my dog."

Buddy was the second Clinton dog killed while roaming unattended. The first, a cocker spaniel named Zeke, was hit by a car while running loose in 1991 near the governor's mansion in Little Rock, Ark.

It was then that the former first family got Socks the cat, who, according to then-Clinton press secretary Susie Whiteacre, was to be their second and final pet.

"Socks is pretty much Chelsea's cat and I don't expect them to get another dog," Whiteacre told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette at the time.

During the 1992 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton explained to an acquaintance that Zeke was killed "after years of near misses," according to Newsday.

"We still miss him, especially Chelsea," she added. "We haven't even tried to replace him, but have a great cat named 'Socks!'"

The Clintons gave Socks away to longtime Clinton aide Betty Currie in January 2001.

A few days after Buddy's death, Ingrid Newkirk, president of the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, complained publicly that the Clintons had failed to take "adequate precautions" to prevent Buddy’s death.

"We understand that Buddy is the second Clinton family dog to be killed in traffic," Newkirk wrote at the time. "Please let him be the last."

Newkirk was unavailable for comment on the news that Clinton intended to get yet another dog.

I'm suprised he didn't have buddy stuffed and mounted on little rolling platform that he can drag the dog around like a pull-toy. Better yet, he should get one of those leashes that make it appear that you have an invisible dog. Then he pull a Hillary and say that the ghost of buddy is still with him to comfort him and give him advice. This ought to get him a few more photo ops.

Poor little demented Ingrid Newkirk.

Note to Ingrid Newkirk & PETA: Buddy was whacked! He new much too much about the "White House" days, and he could not be trusted not to talk. Therefore, he had to be whacked! It should be a mission for PETA to get to the bottom of Buddy's untimely demise. You owe it to the next puppy that Clinton gets. I would suggest that you, immediately, start a multi-million dollar investigation into the possible gang land style murder of Buddy. Remember, this is for the puppies!

Clinton to Replace Dead Buddy with New Dog

Those who are unaware that Clinton's dog was named Buddy might have misinterpreted the headline, believing that Bubba would replace a lost human buddy with one of the canine persuasion. Upon further review, as the instant replay ref says, it is obvious that Buddy was also a dog. For Buddy to have been a human would have meant that the Great Stainmaker actually had a human friend, instead of just a series of sycophants, fellatrixes, and assorted ass-kissers awed by the power of his office, all of whom he used for his own benefit and discarded when he was through with them.

2 dogs hit by cars and his cat runs away. The SPCA should put this man on their Wanted posters.

But were they really accidents? Perhaps they just knew too much or threatened to call PETA...

In a statement released Monday, DC Park police stated that beloved first family dog "Buddy" was found dead in the middle of Pennsylvania Ave. Park police are calling this a suicide because the car that hit buddy was found parked, engine running, a few feet away. Police theorize that buddy stole the car from the White House motor-pool and took it the site of the suicide where he jumped out of the car window, ran ahead (he's a dog and he can do this) and then stood in its path. Clinton staffers, after a search of buddy's doghouse turned up a suicide note hidden in box of milk bone doggy treats, confirming park police suspicions that this was suicide. In the note, Buddy claimed responsibility for the disapearance of "Socks" the cat..."

Billy Jeff wants to get a new Buddy.

Won't he have to divorce the old one first?

Twenty posts, and no one has started a "dead pool" for the poor 'new dog' yet. We're slipping.

I'll bet Slick misses bar hopping with Virginia Kelly, too.

Why even take him home first? - can do it on the way home! She has enough trouble in her house without another leg-humper.

Poor dog. Isn't it bad enough that Bill Clinton is his master, but he has to get his balls removed as well.

It's hard to get to know the neighbors when you spend all your time overseas collecting $300,000 payoffs for inane speeches. Please tell us, Ken, what a good neighbor x42 has been. I'm sure all the folks in Chappaqua plan to have him over for barbecue this summer.

That would make sence. Puppies are better chic magnets than adult dogs. That's why he has them knocked off after they are no longer cute.

I bet he wishes he could do the same thing to Hillary.

What do you want to bet he names his new dog the same as his old dog. Course he could name him Leonard Peltier Who or Who for short.

This is horrible news. Clinton is never home. He isn't going to raise, train, love that dog. It's just a prop. This is irresponsible dog ownership. This is so wrong, just so horribly wrong.

"Okay, Buddy, I'm going to throw this ball really far, and you go chase it. Even if it goes into the street, I want you to chase it. Don't worry about the traffic - they'll stop (heh heh heh). Okay, boy - here goes! Wow, if only I could get Hillary to chase tennis balls so willingly ..."

Getting a dog to "spruce up his image". Sheesh..... He is so shallow that he doesn't even understand how bad that sounds. His new dog, just like his last, is to be an accessory to make him look better to the public.

Clinton should be taken to court by PETA to get him barred from ever owning another pet as long as he lives. Among his many titles of shame is a new one "Clinton, serial abuser of pets."

#38 I agree. Looks like he COULD at least spend some $$ and get an invisible fence. HE'S never "home" so he would never care for any animal. If he insists on a pet, I'd recommend an acquarium of fish.

IMO he's green-jealous of all the favorable photo ops Dubya and Laura get with Spot and Barney.

I read just recently that the Clinton's never allowed any of their animals into the family quarters at the White House.
They supposedly would keep the dog and cat kenneled until it was time to go outside and have pictures taken.

Remember Socks the Cat? Buddy replaced Socks due to a poll Little Big Fraud® commissioned, which showed more favorable results for dogs. Just one more of a nearly-infinite series of swindles perpetrated on America by this one-man crime wave....
