The Secret Service is extremely disturbed over the discovery that the new dog adopted by the President's family is actually a Chinese mole. It is a mole not only in the sense that it has been equipped with micro-spy equipment in order to gather intelligence on the goings on in the White House, but also in the fact that it is a real mole.
Passing it off as a Portuguese Water Hound, Chinese agents snuck the animal into Ted Kennedy's house just before he presented it to Mr. Obama's family.
In China, moles grow to dog size dimensions, and they had its snout doctored and its claws blunted to look like paws. That something was wrong was not noticed until it was observed that the 'dog' kept bumping into furniture as though it was having a hard time seeing.
Upon inspection it was discovered that the 'hound' had mini microphones installed in its ears and tiny cameras that recorded all that was in its environment.
Because the Obama girls are already so attached to the animal, it is being kept outside where it has been helping Michelle dig the garden.
