For a short time, Wikipedia told readers that the next pet at the White House will be “Newty the Pig-dog.”
Someone had jokingly edited Bo Obama’s Wikipedia page to add the name as Bo’s supposed successor. “Newty the Pig-dog” linked to a separate Wikipedia page for Newt Gingrich.
The text was quickly corrected, with the “Successor” line excised.
We’re certain President-elect Donald Trump wouldn’t think this was a very funny stunt, though some readers must have gotten a chuckle out of it.
So far, Trump has not announced plans for a pet to join him at the White House when he is inaugurated later this month. However, a donor has said she hopes to give the new president a goldendoodle puppy named Patton.
