Sen. Kennedy and his dog, Splash, visit Fenway
BOSTON (AP) - It was a dog day at Fenway Park as Senator Edward Kennedy and his Portuguese Water Dog, Splash, visited the old ballyard for a school reading event.
The senator read a portion of his new children's book, "My Senator and Me: A Dogs-Eye View of Washington D.C.," to a group of Boston-area school children.
The picture book takes readers through a day in the life of the senator, told from the perspective of Splash.
Joining Kennedy was Red Sox outfielder Gabe Kapler, who is recuperating from a torn Achilles tendon. Kapler swapped his baseball bat for a tennis racket and hit tennis balls toward the "Green Monster" for Splash to fetch.

I was going to make a crude joke about JFK having a cat named Marilyn, but this is a family blog (use your imagination)!
