The new "first dog" has been picked --a Portuguese Water Dog named Bo who was a gift from friends of Senator Kennedy.
My own Dog Haze Hayes has the scoop and some advice for the new Obama dog here
He's kinda cute but not half as cool as a chihuahua. And what's up with the boa? Are you a stripper at GoldPaws or something?
Still we chihuahuas are not great with children. We just don't have the patience for them and don't like to play as much as kids would like us to I'm afraid.
Regardless, some advice for the first dog.
1) Don't pee in the Rose Garden. Save your best work for the Oval--that way you'll make the press.
2) No biting. Unless they are a Republican.
3) Be a picky eater. This is the White House. They have all kinds of good stuff somewhere. Steaks and Hamburger meat might not ever come your way but at the same time, hold out for the high end stuff. And don't settle for the cheap stuff after that. Besides, once you have the gourmet meat by-products you really can't ever go back, can you?
He's got 7 more at the jump
Welcome to the White House, Bo. I hope the kids love you as much as I love my Haze.
