The Obamas Get Their First Puppy
A Portugese water dog named Bo graced the White House with its presence this weekend. Ever since the President announced that he’d be getting his daughters their first dog this year, animal lovers everywhere have been guessing what kind. This black and white puppy was a gift from Sen. Ted Kennedy (from Massachusetts) because he knew the first family needed a dog that’s good for kids with allergies, which Malia has. After a couple of “meetings” with the dog, the family has decided to keep it, and it officially moves in on Tuesday. Although many animal rights activists are disappointed that they didn’t get a rescue dog, the Obamas will be donating money to the D.C. Humane Society.
