The Obama Family Welcomes The First Dog

The newest resident at the White House has officially moved in. Bo, a 6-month-old Portugese Water Dog has come to live with President Barack Obama and his family.

A gift from Sen. Ted Kennedy, the pup was welcomed with open arms by the two daughters of the President and First Lady Michelle Obama, 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha Obama.

The First Family has pledged to make a donation to the District of Columbia Humane Society in lieu of taking in a stray. With the arrival of the doggie, President Obama has finally fulfilled his promise made to his daughters during his presidential campaign. Otherwise, I’m sure Malia and Sasha would have ripped him a new one in the press.
