Senator Edward Kennedy will be best remembered for being a champion for social issues like anti-discrimination and health care for everyone, but he was also a champion for dogs.  Kennedy loved dogs, specifically Portuguese Water Dogs commonly known as “Porties”.  This water loving breed was perfect for the Senator, because when his was not on Capitol Hill he was on the shores of the Nantucket Sound at his Hyannis Port, MA home.  What a water dog  haven!    Kennedy’s love for these dogs made national news when he gave the Obamas their new Portie puppy,  “Bo”.  Kennedy died of brain cancer at the age of 77.
