In his acceptance speech (video across the fold), Barack Obama promised his daughters, Malia and Sasha, a new puppy. Obama touched hearts across America and the world when he told the precious first progeny: "I love you both more than you can imagine. And you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us."

Although Obama will certainly have a full plate re-establishing leadership in environmental protection and addressing climate change, a green puppy would capture the attention of America's next generation of voters and demonstrate the new White House commitment to leaving a better planet for our children than we inherited ourselves.

The first question facing the first daughters is whether to get a recycled dog. Rumor has it the girls want a Golden Doodle (pictured). Then they could consider building a cool eco-dog house with a green roof. A hemp leash and baking homemade organic doggie treats are de rigeur. And will the White House join San Francisco in embracing the power of dog poo?
