So, it was a busy couple of days at the White House. Apparently the girls are finally, finally getting the First Puppy. He’s a 6 month old Portuguese Water Dog who the girls are naming Bo. They named him Bo in honor of their grandfather (on their mother’s side) who’s nickname was Diddley ( as in football star Bo Diddley). Bo the dog is a gift from Senator Edward Kennedy (from Massachusetts) who has lots of Portuguese Water dogs. These kinds of dogs are known to be hypoallergenic, which means they don’t cause anyone to sneeze. Malia Obama is allergic to dogs, so we hope she and Bo and Sasha get to hang out a lot.
