Bo the First Dog receives presidential honors.
Bo the Obama families pet dog celebrates his first birthday.
It has been an amazing journey for the Portuguese water dog. A nation held in suspense for weeks waiting to see which dog would fulfil the Presidents first promise watched in great anticipation as “Bo” was revealed.
Some say that President Obama did not live up to his to promise, but not taking in a rescue dog, but that has generally been accepted in light of Malia’s allergies.
The Telegraph reports that:
“We had a really sweet celebration,” admitted Mrs Obama. “He got a doghouse cake made out of veal stuff and he had his brother Cappy come over and we had party hats.”
“We did this in the Rose Garden. It was so much fun. Cappy actually stole the rest of the cake off the table but Bo did not seem to mind.”
So obviously Bo is as gracious as his Presidential mentor.
All that we can do now is watch and wait to see if the next 12 months of Bo’s life are as happy as the past 12.
