Today started out ordinarily enough for George W's Scottish Terrier Barney. He awakened from a peaceful slumber, sleepily stretched in his warm shearling-lined bed, panted a little and went out for his morning walk/crap.
Alas, Barney didn't even have time to sink his paws into the sprawling manicured lawn (let alone pee) before he was hounded by a group of overly-friendly reporters. Still, kinda the norm, so Barney would have been cool (irritated, but cool) if they'd limited it to the filming, picture-taking, and repeated 'Hi Barney's. But then, then, an annoying Reuters White House correspondent--who always hangs around Barney's pad--tried to touch him.
And that's where Barney drew the line.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this probably has something to do with Barney's temperament.If you'll recall, his dad literally dropped him on his head (though not as a baby).
