Will New First Dog Be Known as Boobama?

By Yul

Somebody should have told Sasha and Malia Obama the last name counts when you pick dog names. They’re calling their new puppy Bo, either after their grandfather, “Diddley” Robinson, or after their cousin’s cat. I prefer to think it’s the latter. Bo was aka Charlie.

The new First Pup is is a Portuguese Water Dog from Texas, born on October 9, 2008, in a litter of 10 (top that, Nadya Suleman!). The Obamas are his second adoptive family, after another one returned him to the breeder.

One of Bo’s littermates, Cappy, belongs to Senator Ted Kennedy, and the Kennedys reportedly had Bo coached in comportment, like some canine Eliza Doolittle, before presenting him to the Obamas. It all makes you wonder if the dog has issues. However, they said he behaved beautifully during his secret audition at the White House a few weeks ago.

None of the Obamas has ever had a dog before, so let’s hope Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer, never gets that call to set Bo straight because the pressures of being First Dog have totally unhinged him. Too many priceless White House antiques are at stake. In fact, let’s hope the Obamas read Cesar’s pointers for them.

The Obama Dog Blog has been unofficially following this story from the beginning and promises future “scoop.”

Given the president’s Web savvy, I predict Bo will soon have his own Web cam, like former First Dog Barney Bush.

Male Portuguese Water Dogs grow to be 42-55 pounds. A full-grown one appeared on The Today Show this morning with most of his hind end shaved bald. I guess that’s supposed to be fashionable.

I hope the Obamas leave Bo’s butt alone and Michelle doesn’t start dressing him in J.Crew cardigans.
