Barney the Dog

Barney Bush has as much respect for the press as his Presidential owner. On November 6, 2008, the star of several White House holiday videos and his own special feature (BarneyCam!) bit a Reuters reporter on the finger during a morning walk along the White House's North Lawn. Maybe he was angry about the Election Night results? Unfortunately, that's not Barney's only bite; the eight-year-old Scottish Terrier had taken a chomp out of the Boston Celtics' public relations director a month earlier. Barney better watch out or he could face the same fate as his predecessor (the Clintons gave away Socks, the First Cat, when they left the White House).
