The six-month-old puppy is a gift from Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) who owns several Portuguese water dogs himself. This breed of dog is considered a good pet for children who have allergies, as Malia Obama does. (Photo by Win McNamee/Getty Images)

In honor of the Obama’s latest addition to their family, we’re taking a look back at a few other lucky dogs:

    What a great collection of pictures. The Obama dog is by far the most adorable dog to ever reside in the White House.
    Also, is Bill Clinton wearing cowboy boots….?
