First Dog Bo Obama, a Portuguese Water Dog

The White House finally has a first dog again.
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.

  2. I think Bo is adorable! And, with Malia's allergies, I can understand why they went this route instead of the shelter.

    Nice that they made a large donation to several shelters.

  3. I have a feeling Bo is going to have his very own fan club!
