Bo Obama Visiting Children's National Medical Center 2011

Bo Brings a Dose of Holiday Cheer to the Children

In a tradition dating back 60 years to the days of First Lady Bess Truman, Michelle Obama and Santa paid a visit to the Children's National Medical Center in Washington DC. Of course, a storytime reading of Twas the Night Before Christmas is always a hit, but what really rang in the holiday cheer was an appearance by Bo, the first family's famous Portuguese Water Dog. Dogs have long been a source of therapy and comfort for the hospital-bound, but this gentle giant seems to truly enjoy the company of his adoring fans, and the children in turn are clearly smitten with the lovable presidential pet.

For another photo of the first lady and first dog, just read more.
