Bo the Portuguese Water Dog, the White House's canine inhabitant.
I keep calling him Bo-bama.
Please note that he's black and white--like Ruth and Jewel. To say we're chuffed is putting it mildly. But now they're after me to get them some paper flower leis like his.
In honour of Bo here's The Dog Song by Nellie McKay, a perfect description of how dogs enhance our lives. Such a fun tune! The morning after seeing this very Letterman performance, I ran out to buy her debut album...been a fan ever since.
