Barking up the Right Tree: Rep. Barletta’s Dog Dubbed Cutest on Capitol Hill
Riley, an 18-month-old English cream golden retriever and “best friend” of Representative Lou Barletta, (bow)-wowed IJReview judges in the search for the cutest dog on Capitol Hill.
After digging up the likes, dislikes, ages, and breeds of the Hill’s dogs, the IJReview newsroom voted on the cutest ones. The pups’ political affiliations were not taken into consideration in an effort to remain objective and fair.
Out of the 11 dogs that were ranked, Riley landed the number one spot.
Riley enjoys spending every day in Barletta’s office, playing with kids and other dogs, and receiving belly rubs.
His dislikes are few, but include getting in the car. Each time he must be carried into the car by the Congressman.
