Apparently, the first dog is not happy about the impending changes at the White House.

Today, Barney bit a reporter outside the briefing room.  The whole incident was caught on tape by another reporter, April D. Ryan.

Reuters political reporter Jon Decker had finished an interview with MSNBC around 10:30 a.m. when he saw Barney and his handler. After getting permission to pet the dog, Decker said Barney snapped and chomped down on his right index finger and broke the skin.

Decker said his first reaction was, "that's not good."

Decker said he was treated with a bandage and some antibiotics and was asked to return for a tetanus shot Friday.  He has not gotten any calls from the White House.
