Obamas Are Getting A Taste Of Puppyhood

April 24th, 2009 by Dan

Bo Obama, the First Puppy, was described as “kind of crazy” by First Lady Michelle Obama, during a Q&A session with a crowd of “Take Your Child To Work Day” attendees at the White House. While lots of other topics interested the young crowd, the Portuguese Water Dog pup just kept coming up. It turns out that Bo is going through that puppy phase where he likes to chew on people’s feet. I’m sure that he has every toy a puppy could dream of and hopefully the Obamas (and Bo’s staff) are working on redirecting his behavior.

The playful pup is living up to his breeds reputation. Th First Lady told the kids, “It was like 10 p.m. at night, everybody was asleep, and we hear all this barking and jumping around, and the President and I came out and we thought somebody was out there. And it was just Bo.”

Bo is really hitting the big time! He’s featured on an upcoming cover of The New Yorker magazine too!
