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. Download and start listening now!
