Bo and the Obama family

Obama and BoRarely has a family’s search for a dog been so closely followed by the nation than the Obama family’s. They promised a First Dog to their children when the campaigning was all over. Humane societies pressed them to take a shelter dog, but due to the allergies of one of the children, they ultimately settled for Bo.

He has now been joined at the White House by another Portuguese water dog, Sunny.
