Flowering Trees on 24th Street in Chelsea

From a WashPost’s News Alert email:

The biggest mystery of the Obama White House’s first 100 days has been revealed: The first puppy — the one that the Washington press corps has been yelping about for months — is a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog given to Malia and Sasha as a gift by Sen.
