First Tookie, now Teddy

The senior senator from Massachusetts writes a children's book about a dog named--wait for it--Splash.
My Senator and Me: A Dog's-Eye View of Washington, D.C. tells the story of Senator Kennedy and his dog, Champion Amigo's Seventh Wave (nicknamed "Splash" by his original owner) and a day in their life in the Senate. A Portuguese Water Dog, Splash is always at Senator Kennedy's side - in his office, at press conferences, in meetings at the Capitol and even right outside the Senate chamber. Told from Splash's point of view, this charming picture book not only takes readers through a full day in the Senator's life, but also explains how a bill becomes a law. My Senator and Me also includes biographies of Senator Kennedy and Splash.

Who will be the next celebrity to try his hand at children's literature? I'm waiting for Jenna Jameson's children's tome to come out: G is for G-string: A phonics primer.
