“My dog is smarter than your dog.” So, intimated Joe Biden to an elementary class when comparing his German Shepherd, Champ, to Barack Obama’s Portugese Water Dog, Bo. This fun article from POLITICO compares the prized power pups.
The VP was asked at an elementary school in Syracuse if he had ever petted a dog. He confirmed that he had and added, “guess what, I got one that lives with me…The smartest, coolest dog in the world. His name is Champ.” He added, “I wish you could see my doggie,” and then did a major PR push by saying “And by the way, I kid the president, my dog’s smarter than Bo, his dog. Yeah I do. I think he is.”
Linda Brown, head honcho at Jolindy’s, where Champ was born and where his dog family still lives, told POLITICO that “he is smarter than any Portuguese waterdog.”
So which side do you come down on in the my dog is smarter than your dog wars: First dog Bo or second dog Champ?
