Today in Heritage History, 1997, President Bill Clinton names his new Labrador Retriever, “Buddy”. This was only after advice from his Political Advisers. The President had taken the new First Family puppy to a doggie playground in Washington and watched (proudly) as the puppy tried to hump every female dog in sight, both moving and stationary. The President had wanted to use the name, “Pussy Hound”,”Snatch Sniffer” or,”Mini-me”, but his Advisers suggested the more toned-down but the still suggestive version; “Buddy”.
