New EU Top Officials

The European Union has a new President and a new High Representative of Foreign Affairs. The posts has gone to Belgian Herman Van Rompuy and UK Baroness Ashton, respectively. It is a man from a small member state and a woman from a big member state, and consensus seems to be achieved. There are articles about them both in Swedish and international mass media, the Swedish one focusing on this agreement as an achievement of the Swedish PM Fredrik Reinfeldt as the man behind the smooth process of reaching an agreement, whereas I have read more about the two persons in international mass media. However, I have yet to find out what dogs these humans have, if any. Can you truly trust a political leader who does not have a dog (or perhaps other pet)?
