President Bush's Barney takes a bite out of a reporter

If you havent seen Barney the White House dog's attack video - its worth the 30 seconds or so.

Presidential pooch Barney wasn't leaving the White House without a bite.

The black Scottish terrier snapped at Reuters television correspondent Jonathan Decker today, nipping the reporter's right index finger as he leaned down to pet him.

"He totally got me," Decker said after Barney snarled and snapped at him.

"Totally broke my skin. Well, now I have a story to tell."

Barney, one of two terriers kept by the Bush family, was out for a walk when the incident occurred in the White House driveway. Another reporter captured the whole thing on videotape.

Decker was treated by a White House doctor, and wound up with a bandaged finger. He'll remain on antibiotics for a few days while the wound heals.
