Here's Bo Obama's Official Portrait
My bloggy pal Helen Wheels (See 'Just Ain't Right' on my blogroll) is upset that the Obamas selected a purebred dog as opposed to a rescue dog.
Assuming their decision was based on Malia's allergies, I can understand why they didn't want to risk a mixed breed's potential for allergens.
But damn, Bo is a cute pup.
From what I read, he's friendly but not well behaved and has issues with authority. I like that in a First Dog.
Barney Bush, like his daddy George W., was a prick. He bit and growled at people, like his grandma Barbara.
I love that the Obama girls lied their little asses off about walking Bo and taking great care of him.
I also love that Michelle complains that she's left to walk Bo and take him out to do his business. The best part of that is how many pics I've seen of White House staff doing that instead of her.
If I lived in the White House, I'd have a ton of puppies and kitties. I'd pet them and play with them, then call someone else to mess with their crap and litter boxes.
Every year I'd auction off a few of them for charity.
Who wouldn't want to own a First dog or cat?
