Number 10 Getting a Dog?

Boris Johnson asked Number 10 staff, "Do you want a dog?" they replied: "Yes."

Sky News has reported that Boris Johnson discussed getting a dog in Downing Street with Number 10 staff.

The new prime minister is said to have told staff that previously Number 10 cat “Larry” and the Foreign Office cat “Palmerston” – who he would have known from his time as foreign secretary – didn’t get along. Mr Johnson said he was coming into office in the spirit of reconciliation.

He then asked the staff: “Do you want a dog?” And the staff replied: “Yes.”

Dogs are a much more common choice of pet for US presidents than UK prime ministers, with Barack Obama having “Bo” and “Sunny” – two Portuguese Water Dogs – during his time in the White House.
