Happy Birthday, Bo! First Dog Turns One!


Our president may have received the Nobel Peace Prize this morning, but for his daughters, there is more important business at hand: the first birthday of Bo Obama! First daughter Malia made sure her father was well aware of the dog’s special day when he woke up this morning.

At a press conference today, President Obama took to the White House’s Rose Garden to make his first public comments on being named the surprise winner of this year’s peace prize and said it wasn’t at all how he expected to wake up.

“Malia came in and said, ‘Daddy, you own the Nobel Peace Prize, and it is Bo’s birthday.’ Then Sasha added, ‘Plus we have a three-day weekend coming up!’ ” he told reporters.

“So it’s good to have kids to keep things in perspective,” he added.

The Portuguese water dog joined the first family in April when he was just six months old. He was a gift from the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, who picked up Bo from the same Texas breeder he’s used for his own pets, Amigo Portuguese Water Dogs of Boyd, Texas.
