White House Portuguese Water Dog, Bo, Now Known

boEven though news of the new White House puppy was scheduled to be released this coming Tuesday, news this good just can’t be kept in Washington.

The new first dog is a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog. According to the Washington Post, the puppy was “given to the Obama girls as a gift by that Portuguese water dog-lovin’ senator himself, Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. The girls named it Bo — and let it be noted that you learned that here first. Malia and Sasha chose the name, because their cousins have a cat named Bo and because first lady Michelle Obama’s father was nicknamed Diddley, a source said. (Get it? Bo . . . Diddley?) .”

The search for a Portuguese water dog for the girls has been going on since February 26th, when the family selected the breed. I’m glad the wait is over, and think Bo is a great Easter present for the girls.
