Pa. boy offering dog to Obama family

Two western Pennsylvania county commissioners will be bringing more than best wishes to President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration in Washington, D.C. Fayette County Commissioners Vincent Vicites and Vincent Zapotsky are also delivering a letter from fourth-grader Zack Shiley who is offering his puppy to the Obama family.

The Obamas have been searching for a dog to be their White House pet.

Shiley attends Wharton Elementary School in Farmington. The labradoodle puppy is the only survivor of a litter born to the family's two dogs on Nov. 26.

Vicites says it's a long shot the Obamas will accept the dog, but he noted the First Family has to get their puppy from somebody.
