Arrival of New First Pooch Imminent

TMZ  reported yesterday that the appearance of the new White House dog is on schedule and that the suspense is finally over.  It has been confirmed that the first pooch will be a Portuguese Water Dog and will be presented by Senator Ted Kennedy who has two himself and had recommended the breed to the Obama’s.

The word on the arrival date is ‘imminent’ rather than “soon… so soon” but nothing definite as Michelle told reporters last week, or “Oh, man, now, that’s top secret,” as the President said to laughter last week. “That’s top secret.”  

 

TMZ reported that the chosen pooch comes from a prominent Texas kennel with the help of Senator Ted Kennedy’s family and that Michele and Barack intend to introduce their girls to their new dog to be  named Bo, on Tuesday. 

“The black dog,  a male,  is approximately six months old,” it reports. “We’ve learned it was bred at the kennel and sold to someone who gave it back. The kennel is now “re-homing” the dog to the Obamas.”  

The dog was named Charlie, but the Obamas will rename it, Bo.  The girls chose that name for their grandfather, Michelle’s dad.  His nickname was Diddly, as in Bo Diddly.

“Now here’s where the Kennedys come into play. The kennel has sold the Kennedys three Portuguese Water Dogs in the past, all from the same lineage.

The dog the Obamas will be getting is from the same lineage as the Kennedy dogs. The Kennedy family will be presenting the new dog to the Obamas, but it’s really coming from the kennel.”

The reason this all sounds a bit odd or technical is that there are issues regarding gifts to the President. The fact that the pup is being re-homed makes it all ‘kosher’.

 

 

Senator Dick Durbin, Mr Obama’s fellow Illinois politician, said the dog had been going through training while the president and the first lady were on their recent travels in Europe.  And, according to another report, the dog has already been to the White House for a “familiarisation” visit.
