Obama’s Next Pick in the Dog House?

The news is inundated with President-elect Obama’s new economic team picks: Christina Romer to head his Council of Economic Advisers, Timothy Geithner, chosen as secretary of the Treasury, and Lawrence Summers, who will be the top White House economic adviser as head of the National Economic Council.   These intellectual decisions demonstrate Obama’s desire to have a successful team.  “Understand where the vision for change comes from first and foremost: it comes from me.” 

But Barack Obama is not alone in his next important pick:  choosing the right family dog.  “This has been tougher than finding a commerce secretary.”  This family choice has been narrowed down to the Labradoodle and the Portuguese Water Dog, according to AOL News.

And since the planet is also one of the soon-to-be President’s top priorities, the Obama family needs to be aware of their furry friend’s carbon paw print.  PlanetGreen simply provides a list of ways to greenify your family pet: Composting the dog’s poop, choosing the appropriate natural and organic pet food, or tagging your pet using an electronic ID chip are all eco-friendly choices.  To get more information about the Obama’s dog finalists, check out Petstyle.

Earth Promise’s goal bring to people together people to make, track and keep promises about actions that will benefit the earth has a slew of green pet ideas for the Obamas and you:

To buy pet treats with no packaging (from the pet store treat bar).

To buy a collar for my pet that is made of organic canvas instead of nylon.

To buy only pet toys made from recycled materials.

To buy a pet bed that is filled with recycled fiber.

To speak to my veterinarian about putting my pet on a vegetarian diet, or feeding them food with less meat, poultry or fish.

So, whatever color dog (or any pet) you decide for your family, make sure it is a green one!
