Presidential Turd Wrangler

The president has one pooch, a photo-op accessory called Bo.... The presidential dog-walker is one of 226 White House staff earning over $100,000 a year.

For many centuries, the King had a courtier whose somewhat intimate duties were reflected in his title: the Groom of the Stool, a position abolished in 1559. Now, after two and a third centuries, the American presidency has evolved to the point that it has a full-time six-figure Groom of the Canine Stool. -- The Royal Presidency - Mark Steyn
