As we pay homage to this nation's highest office today, it's also the perfect time to celebrate the commander in chief's best friend. First Dog Bo has snuggled himself into the hearts of the Obama family, White House staff, foreign dignitaries, and the American public with his curly, cuddly fur, even-keeled temperament, and deep, soulful eyes. He's also put Portuguese Water Dogs on the map for many folks who had never heard of the breed before this pup paraded across the White House lawn in 2009. So happy Presidents' Day, Bo! We hope your day brims with treats, naps, and a gallop across the South Lawn!
