First Puppy Selected

What is perhaps the most eagerly awaited appointment from Barack Obama has finally been settled. The identity of the first puppy leaked out:

The little guy is a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog given to the Obama girls as a gift by that Portuguese water dog-lovin’ senator himself, Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. The girls named it Bo — and let it be noted that you learned that here first. Malia and Sasha chose the name, because their cousins have a cat named Bo and because first lady Michelle Obama’s father was nicknamed Diddley, a source said. (Get it? Bo . . . Diddley?)

Bo’s a handsome little guy. Well suited for formal occasions at the White House, he’s got tuxedo-black fur, with a white chest, white paws and a rakish white goatee.

Clearly, the identity of the dog was information too big to contain. A mysterious Web site called http://firstdogcharlie.com published a picture of a Portie yesterday morning, complete with a Q and A with the dog, which it said was originally named Charlie. The celebrity gossip Web site http://TMZ.comlinked to the picture. So much for the big White House unveiling.

Bo seems to be a common pet name. I personally know of two pets named Bo. One was a cat owned by a friend of my wife while we were dating named after Bo Brady on Days Of Our  Lives. I also have a friend with a pair of dogs named Bo and Brady after former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler and former Michigan quarterback Tom Brady.

I do not anticipate any difficulties in obtaining Senate confirmation for this key appointment. Bo does not appear to have any unpaid taxes or nanny problems.
