    Dog bites reporter: Is that news?
    By BEN FELLER, AP



    WASHINGTON -Talk about a biting critique of the press.

    It seems President Bush's dog Barney wasn't much in the mood for friendly attention during his walk outside the White House on Thursday. So when Reuters reporter Jon Decker reached down to pet the Scottish terrier, the seemingly docile dog snapped at him and bit Decker's right index finger.

    Reporter April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks happened to capture the moment on video.
    And, naturally, it soon wound up on YouTube. The video comes to an end with a freeze frame on Barney's fangs.

    Barney won't have to worry about bothersome reporters much longer. The Bush administration ends in 75 days, and the president is headed back to Texas.
    Sally McDonough, a spokeswoman for first lady Laura Bush, said of Barney: "I think it was his way of saying he was done with the paparazzi."

    Seems he had already been walked that morning and was fresh out of pee. Good Terrier.

    The dumbass reporter obviously wasn't familiar with dogs. You never approach a dog with your hand above its head like that (unless the dog is really familiar with you and trusts you). If the guy had held his hand out palm up below the level of Barney's head, I don't think he would have gotten bit.

    Somehow, someway, this just has to be Karl Rove's fault! :D

    Good boy Barney! Now let's go talk to Keith Overbite.
