So he's finally here!
Bo is very cute, but I'm sorry, he's NOT a puppy. He's just not. I wanted a tiny little peanut of a dog the size of a thimble that Obama could carry around in his pocket. Oh well.
Bo's pretty awesome so far though. He seems VERY energetic.
I highly recommend you check out the Presidential Pet Museum, which has loads of info on past presidential pups and ponies.
There's Taft's cow, Pauline Wayne. The last cow at the White House!
Benjamin Harrison's pet goat, Old Whiskers.
Feller, the Unwanted Dog. Harry Truman got him as a present but gave him away to the White House Physician. HOW DO YOU GIVE THIS DOG AWAY??? LOOK AT THAT THING!
Did you know that Calvin Coolidge had three collies, a terrier, an Airedale, a sheepdog, a chow, another chow, a bulldog, a police dog, a bird dog, canaries, a goose, a mockingbird, raccoons, a donkey, and cats? Dignitaries from other countries gave them lion cubs, a wallaby, a pygmy hippo and a bear. WTF, COOLIDGE? Best President ever.
Obamas, get some wallaby babies and maybe you'll be back in my good graces.
