Ex-Kennedy Aide Was Voice Of Dog, ‘Splash’
When Colin Buckley went to Washington to work for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, he’d hoped to become an assistant, or an advisor, maybe even a speechwriter. Instead, he became the senator’s dog.
When emails came in for Kennedy’s dog, Splash, it was Buckley’s job to respond — in character. He wrote about that experience on the op-ed page of the New York Times Tuesday, on what would have been the senator’s 79th birthday.
