Popular Arlington Cajun restaurant Chasin' Tails got a starring role in White House pool reports Thursday, but just what they offer inside the establishment seemed to confuse the pooler.

Denver Post's Allison Sherry noted the store as President Obama left a Falls Church home where he met with the Santana family to talk taxes. She wrote: "At 2:04 pm we are rolling back to White House, passing a Sunrise Senior Living retirement home where several people in wheelchairs had rolled out to sidewalk to wave. People stepped out of 'Chasin' Tails' to see the motorcade. Assuming that's a store for pooches."

Less than a half hour later came the correction and a warning from the reporter: "I've been told Chasin' Tails is a restaurant in Falls Church, not a store for dogs. According to its website, they serve crawfish and shrimp. Best not to eat the tails. My apologies."
