The latest buzz from D.C. is something going on in an undisclosed location.
Welcome Bo! The kids named him.
I love this picture of the family gathered around meeting the newest addition to their family, not posing for the cameras, but focused on "Bo".
Bo is a 6 month old pup, a gift from Ted Kennedy. Bo was not a shelter dog, but he did have a different family that he was not a good match with.
Anyway.... the whole family has never had a dog before, so it is a new experience.
The L.A. Times reports:
" A secret get-acquainted session with the family occurred at the White House a few weeks ago. The visit, known around the White House as "The Meeting," was a surprise for the girls. Bo charmed the first family, a source who was there said. He sat when the girls sat, stood when the girls stood. He made no toilet errors and did not gnaw on the furniture. Bo has, after all, been receiving lessons in good behavior from the Kennedys' dog trainers. These lessons have been taking place at a secret, undisclosed location outside Washington.
Bo's a handsome little guy. Well suited for formal occasions at the White House, he's got tuxedo-black fur, with a white chest, white paws and a rakish white goatee."
Bo is a Portuguese water dog, wearing a multicolored Hawaiian lei.
How does the quote go....: If you want a friend in D.C. - get a dog.
