Bo (Obama's Portuguese water dog)


Recommended Posts



Former president Barack Obama on Saturday announced the death of his dog, Bo, whom his family brought to the White House in 2009 shortly after he took office.

“Today our family lost a true friend and loyal companion,” Obama said in an Instagram post that included pictures of Bo running alongside him at the White House and being doted on by visiting schoolchildren, as well as a close-up of his shaggy face.

“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,” Obama wrote. “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."
