Obamas unveil new dog Bo

US Obama Dog

Bo, the black-and-white Portuguese water dog emerged from the White House yesterday to make his first public debut as the newest addition to the Obama household.

After showing off their new pet to the cameras, the family took a long walk around the White House grounds, with the tail-wagging pooch in tow.

The arrival of the pooch ends a long saga dating back to the 2008 campaign trail when Obama promised a dog to his daughters Malia 10, and Sasha seven, to make up for his long absences while running for president.

When the President was asked where the six-month-old canine would sleep, he joked: “Not in my bed.”

It has been reported that the girls named the pet Bo in part because their cousins have a cat of the same name, and perhaps after Michelle Obama’s late father’s nickname Diddley, after the late rock ‘n’ roll legend Bo Diddley.

The dog is a gift to the Obama’s from veteran Senator Edward Kennedy, who owns several Portuguese water dogs.

He should have got a Pitbull instead, that way the American voters would always remember why they didn’t vote red.
