Dog Bites Reporter

Barney, one of the President's two Scotties, bit a member of the White House press corps today. Reuters reporter John Decker was reportedly reaching down to pet Barney when he received a nip to the finger that broke the skin. According to Shenanigans, the White House physician will administer a tetanus shot tomorrow.

Was Barney jealous of all the media coverage surrounding the Obamas' puppy plans?
