2012 USA Olympic Gold Medal Winners and their Dogs
What a thrill! Watching the USA's best athletes kick butt in the 2012 Summer Olympics is almost better than a beef-basted bone filled with never-ending peanut butter! Wish I could be in London with Mom but my presence in Washington is crucial during prime squirrel chasing season.
U-S-A! U-S-A! That's the mantra around my big White House. I sit in front of the tube every chance I get, howling for our team and waving my lucky American flag. I'm proud of all of the members of Team USA!
Check-out some of Team USA's gold medal winners and their biggest furry-fans!
