The April Issue of Monocle Magazine has an article on Ambassador's dogs. This includes that of the American Ambassador to Finland.



http://monocle.com/magazine/issues/72/meet-the-top-dogs/

"Ambassador Oreck is a big Philip K Dick fan. Deckard is named after Rick Deckard, the protagonist of Dick’s sci-fi novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (which later became the film Blade Runner) because he more closely resembles a sheep than a dog. "
