They bite back

Leave it to the White Press corps to retaliate against Presidential pooch Barney after he bit one of their own.

BOSTON - Turns out that when it comes to biting White House visitors, President Bush's dog Barney is a repeat offender.

Boston Celtics public relations director Heather Walker said Friday that Barney bit her wrist and drew blood as she tried to pat the Scottish terrier in September after a White House ceremony honoring the team's 17th NBA championship.

"It was very strange. I didn't expect him to bite me," Walker told The Associated Press.

Last week, Barney bit Reuters reporter Jon Decker's index finger when he reached down to pet the seemingly docile dog. Sally McDonough, a spokeswoman for first lady Laura Bush, said jokingly then of Barney: "I think it was his way of saying he was done with the paparazzi."

McDonough said Friday she was unaware of the incident involving Walker and could not immediately comment.

It is untrue Barney hasn't made any comment since the notorious incident. A little more digging by the fourth estate would have found this video.

How about Barney for President?

Update- I forgot to hat tip Ann Althouse. The University of Wisconsin law professor is one of my favorite bloggers.

For some odd reason, I saw "Presidential pooch Barney" and figured this was an entry about Barney Frank. I guess I'm still hazy from sleeping in; Mr. Frank is the President-Elect's pooch.
