The First Family together with President Barack Obama joined the ladies of his family for their new dog Bo's first walk on the White House lawn amongst the press. The Washington Post reported last week that the new pet, named Bo, is a six-month-old Portuguese water dog. The paper says that first daughters Malia and Sasha Obama named their new pooch Bo after their cousins' cat, also named Bo, and after First Lady Michelle Obama's father, who was reportedly nicknamed Diddley (i.e. Bo Diddley). That's a lovely dog.
