“The Nation’s New Best Friend”

Word came through yesterday that Obamas have settled on the nation’s first pup: a 6-Month-Old Portuguese Water Dog.

“The dog, a gift from Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts who owns several Portuguese water dogs himself, will make his big debut Tuesday afternoon.

The Washington Post reported in its online editions Saturday night that Obama’s daughters chose the name Bo for the pup because first lady Michelle Obama’s father was nicknamed Diddley. The name for the dog was an apparent reference to the singer “Bo” Diddley.”

While I don’t really think this story really deserves the media fuss its been getting, I do think it’s fresh that the Obamas are naming the dog in homage to the recently deceased Blues/Rock singer.

In honor of the nation’s newest, most famous pet what else? A little jawn from “The Originator” himself:
