Goodreads shrank the photo way down. You can see him better in the regular version.

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) My first thought was of the Bo Knows commercials from the late 80's.

Youndyc | 1255 comments He still looks eyeless. Like some weird creepy voodoo doll doggie. With a cute pink tongue hanging out.

Poor doggie, is he part poodle? He looks very strange."


He's a Portuguese Water Dog. I think the First Kids have animal allergies, so they needed a hypo-allergenic breed. I think he's adorable. I love how he always looks like he's formally dressed.

Wasn't he a gift from the Kennedys? I can't remember.

Ah, now I remember thanks to you two helping me. Very unusual breed. I have severe animal allergies also but just wash my dog often.

Yes.

Bo comes from the storied Kennedy clan. Bo's mother is Cappy, one of several dogs owned by dog lover Kennedy. And Bo is a repurposed pup. The White House will be Bo's second home, having lived with another family first.

Catherine McCormick-Lelyveld, a spokesman for the first lady, told the Chicago Sun-Times, "They were looking at shelters, but in the end the Kennedys learned of this litter mate of their dog who needed a home and they wanted to give the girls a gift -- and here we are!"

Lelyveld further explained, Bo "was previously owned but did not get along with the other dogs in its last house. The Kennedys learned of its availability and got it for the Obama girls."
