How to Avoid a Scary Dog Food Recall

New Puppy Alert! Welcome, Bo (Obama)

Finally comes the day we've all speculated about, discussed, and debated . . . and it seems that day is Tuesday. This lil furball is Charlie, the soon-to-be first dog entering the White House tomorrow. Seems Sasha and Malia have settled on an appropriate name that the whole family can agree on, so meet "Bo."

The re-homed Portuguese water dog was returned to a breeder and will be gifted to the Obamas. The Texas kennel is the same one frequented by Ted Kennedy and family, and will be presented by the Kennedys as, you may recall, that family also keeps Porties as pets. Seems the pup had a meet-and-greet a while back and, tomorrow, I hope to have even more information and photos of the six-month-old. 'Til then, join me in a hearty "Welcome, Bo! It's grrreat to finally see you."

yeah when it comes to allergies you gotta make sure your getting a pure bred. And the allergies are individually dog specific. You can be allergic to one dog in a bred and not the other. He's a cute dog. PETA needs to shut the F-up. All dogs need love, so who cares where you get it from as long as you love it and care for it.

What a cutie! Bo was the main topic of discussion at my family's Easter celebration. I can't wait to see the girls playing with him!

Oh, man, PETA is going to be all over this. :irk: Don't get me wrong, I agree 100% that we should be rescuing dogs instead of getting them from breeders. But since his daughter is allergic, they really needed to make sure they had a purebred Portie.
