Bo, a Portuguese Water Dog has arrived at the White House!
The 6-month-old dog, a gift from Sen. Ted Kennedy, was "re-homed" after another family gave the dog up. No reason given.
"Porties," as they're called, are high-energy dogs, a breed of Water Spaniel.
No problem there. I'm sure with two young girls as owners - and with the excitement of the Obamas' all getting their first dog - Bo will get plenty of exercise and attention.
