Bo Obama: First Dog Of The United States

Bo Obama: First Dog Of The United States

Check out this cute new portrait of the Obama family dog, a Portuguese water dog name Bo Obama.

President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and daughters Malia and Sasha welcomed him into the White House on April 14th. Here’s a few little known facts about the pet pooch:

Bo‘s name came from two different places: Mrs. Obama‘s father’s nickname was “Diddley” and Malia and Sasha‘s cousins have a cat named Bo — and another cat named Diddley.

Bo was a gift to the Obama family from Senator Ted Kennedy and his wife, Vicki.

– Even though Bo is a Portuguese water dog, he doesn’t know how to swim!

    @!:love the dog but not the Obamas..he’s digging America into recession and making our enemies stronger

    What was even the point of stating that ! Its about the dog and if everytime Obama is mentioned, the rude, uncalled for comments arent necessary

    >>! @ 06/19/2009 at 4:55 pm love the dog but not the Obamas..he’s digging America into recession and making our enemies stronger

    To Exclamation Point: You’re an idiot !! Just like the others on here who can’t see the forest for the trees when it comes to OUR president, who inherited the “recession” and the mess that your beloved Republican party, led by Bush, put us in. You dumb asses just love to revel in revisionist history. Get your heads out of your asses already and face the facts !!! Obama is trying to right all the wrongs of the last administration as best he can. There’s absolutely NO reason to keep bashing every goddamn thing that he does to even try to get this country back on track. Stop letting your hatred of blacks get in the way of progress already !! We’re in this boat together, whether you like it or not. So do something besides complain and try to find something amiss when there isn’t. Focus on doing your part to make this country better.

    BTW, you naysayers and Republicans, Conservatives, are a bunch of evil devils. Truly, DEVILS !!!!

    O, so cute. And I don’t even have a dog. (I have a cat.)

    It looks like Bo’s saying, “Hey, waz up?” in the first pic. He looks so friendly.
