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.

Naked Chef’s meal for the Prez

Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver provided a best of British menu earlier today for the G20 summit.

US President Barack Obama was amongst the guests at 10 Downing Street the celebrity chef agreed to cook for, despite the fact that his wife Jools is due to give birth to their third child this week.

Topic of discussion around the dinner table – how to create a path to recovery from the worst economic crisis since the 1930’s.

The feast consisted of Scottish salmon, shoulder of lamb and Bakewell tarts for dessert, a simple menu to detract any criticism of extravagance as was the case last year.

I personally don’t know what was wrong with a Burger King, each to their own I suppose.
