We can’t guarantee that the Obama family will take the slightest bit of notice, but we’ll find a way of sending your suggestions to the Transition Offices of the Obama administration.

This will, after all, be one of the key decisions of the first 100 days of the Obama presidency: what to call the puppy Barack has promised to buy for his children.

Give it your best shot. Tell us your suggested name and preferred breed. Send entries to [email protected]. Put “dogname” in the subject field.

FirstDogOnTheMoon will draw a little something for the name he likes best. One FirstDog to another.

We’ll announce the winner this time next week.
