No, no, no. We’re not talking about Sunny or Bo, although you probably want to keep your paws off them, too, if you’re not an appropriate person to be petting them. But they’re talking security dogs who are busy searching for narcotics or bombs — do not touch them, please.

Mark Knoller, the CBS White House radio reporter has the scoop.

Some reacted by reminding people that President Obama once admitted to eating dog as a boy in Indonesia. The news first surfaced in an Obama autobiography, Dreams From My Father. “Obama doesn’t want people touching his food,” wrote one. And another: “Don’t pet Obama’s lunch!”
