Obamas Girls finally get their Dog- BO

The girls - Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7 - were promised a puppy by their father, US President Barack Obama, as a reward for coping with the election campaign.

The water dog, which does not shed hair, is said to be less aggravating for Malia who suffers from allergies.

The identity of the puppy - which had been one of Washington's best kept secrets - was officially revealed yesterday in the news for all the world to see. I must say I did enjoy watching it for I love dogs and Bo is so cute..Evem the Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan was on hand to welcome the pooch and give the girls some dog tips.

'Good behaviour'

They said young Bo - who sports a white chest, white paws and a white goatee - was a gift to the Obama daughters from close family friend, Democratic Senator Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts.

Choosing the First Puppy

Mr Kennedy, who owns three water dogs himself, said in January that he was "proud to endorse the Portuguese water dog as the next First Dog of the United States".

He said the breed would be a "perfect fit for the Obama Family" as the dogs have a "can-do and hopeful spirit" and were smart, resilient, determined, optimistic and tireless.

The dog has been over all TV news networks from the time he arrived at the White House.

I'm not crazy about the breed and how the dog looks. It does look cute, but not the cutest dog ever.

And people should not make a big deal about this. Seriously, news networks have been reporting about Bo too much...
