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 D.C., 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.
