It’s official: Bo is indeed living with the Obamas. The White House blog has published official first puppy photographs. Mr. Obama’s daughters reportedly named the puppy Bo:
"Malia and Sasha chose the name, because their cousins have a cat named Bo and because first lady Michelle Obama’s father was nicknamed Diddley."The Whashington Post described the dog as “a handsome little guy” with “tuxedo-black fur … a white chest, white paws and a rakish white goatee.” Before deciding to give the dog a home, the Obamas arranged a meeting between Bo and the girls, The Post reported:
(Get it? Bo … Diddley? the singer?)
"Bo charmed the first family. He sat when the girls sat, stood when the girls stood. He made no toileting errors and did not gnaw on the furniture. Bo has, after all, been receiving lessons in good behavior from the Kennedys’ dog trainers. These lessons have been taking place at a secret, undisclosed location outside Washington.
Bo, though he was raised elsewhere, already has a keen sense of who’s in charge inside the Beltway. When the president walked across the room during the visit, Bo followed obediently."
