Bo, the Obamas' Portuguese Water Dog, Dies

Source: NY Times

Bo, the Portuguese water dog who became the first presidential pet in the Obama White House, romping in the halls of power, died on Saturday.

Bo, who was 12, had cancer, Michelle Obama said on Instagram. President Barack Obama said the family had lost “a true friend and loyal companion.”

“For more than a decade, Bo was a constant, gentle presence in our lives — happy to see us on our good days, our bad days, and everyday in between,” Mr. Obama wrote on Twitter.

“He tolerated all the fuss that came with being in the White House, had a big bark but no bite, loved to jump in the pool in the summer, was unflappable with children, lived for scraps around the dinner table, and had great hair.”

3. Saw the GD thread

I know they will miss him sorely. And I expect Sunny will miss her "big brother" too.

4. Cancer sucks...

Lost our best family friend to cancer, she had surgery to remove a section of her colon, best 6 months we could have wished for, gave us false hope but still 6 months with the most incredible furbaby anyone could ask for...

6. Fox news reported the story this way.

Why didn't Obama have an American water dog? More proof Obama is a Muslim.
SARCASM But I bet lying Tucker thought about reporting it this way.
