Obamacare signs up its first dog, so there's that, at least Published: November 21, 2013

Hey, at least dogs aren't having a problem getting on Obamacare, according to Yahoo News.

The site reports Shane Smith of Fort Collins, Colo., recently found a little surprise when he signed up for coverage under the Affordable Care Act. After proceeding through all the registration hurdles with Connect for Health Colorado, he learned that his dog Baxter had gotten insured, not Smith himself.

Smith said he guessed the mistake happened when he gave Baxter's name as one of the security questions. “It was pretty funny," Smith said. "Typical Obamacare, that they would insure your dog by mistake.”
