The White Houses Puppy?

Call it an early Easter gift. Call it a fulfilled promise. Call it whatever you want but the Obama girls Malia and Sasha , got their new puppy on Saturday April 11th. The White House wanted to keep this a secret from the general public until they announced it officially on Tuesday. TMZ was the first to report the dogs name, Charlie, but was soon said that the Obamas would change it. Then as soon as the President and his daughters knew that the public knew about the dog, they told the Washington Post that the dogs name was changed to Bo. The Post reports that the reason the girls named the six-month old Portuguese water dog, Bo was because their cousins have a cat named Bo and because their mothers father [grandfather] was nicknamed Diddley. The puppy was a gift from Senator and Mrs. Kennedy. Bo is a boy. When they had "The Meeting" to decide whether they would keep Bo, he was very well behaved. Its reported that Bo was well-behaved and obedient throughout the meeting, sitting when the girls sat, standing when they stood, and maintaining his toilet training. It is also reported that the Obamas will also making a donation to the D.C. Humane Society. Below are two more pictures of the White Houses First Puppy Bo!
