Living legends Ted Kennedy and David Small team up to provide a smart, funny, and affectionate look at life in our nation’s capital from the perspective of the senator and his very perceptive dog.

There’s an old saying: “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” A few years ago, Senator Ted Kennedy decided to do just that.

Now his beloved Portuguese Water Dog Champion Amigo’s Seventh Wave (nicknamed Splash) is the most famous canine on Capitol Hill. Here we follow Senator Kennedy and Splash through a busy day in DC, from press conferences to meetings with school groups to committee discussions to a floor vote. The result is an exciting, behind-the-scenes look at the life of one of the most energetic figures in American politics—and, of course, his equally famous owner.

About the Author
Author Edward M. Kennedy

Edward M. Kennedy (1932–2009) represented Massachusetts in the United States Senate for forty-seven years, making him one of the longest-serving senators in American history. In 2004 he began interviews at the Miller Center of the University of Virginia for an oral history project about his life. For his 2009 memoir, True Compass, he drew from his fifty years of contemporaneous notes from his personal diaries and worked closely on the book with Pulitzer Prize winner Ron Powers, coauthor of Flags of Our Fathers and author of Mark Twain: A Life.
