NEW YORK - Bo has finally made his debut. The new First Pet came out on the lawn with the Obamas to vow a pack of media.
“I love him,” gushed 10-year-old Malia Obama.
“He’s perfect!” she added.
“He’s got star-quality,” Obama joked at one point, adding, “That’s a good-looking dog, though, let’s face it.”
Bo, a 6-month-old ball of energy, has poodle-like hair that’s supposed to be allergy-friendly for Malia’s benefit, reports The New York Daily News.
“We’re very pleased with Bo,” Obama said, though the pup balked at doing tricks after sniffing his way along a row of penned-in reporters.
“There’s a little pressure,” the President excused.
“We got no treats - that’s the problem,” he added.
Obama said that the pet pooch will have the run of the White House, and insisted everyone in the First Family will take turns walking the purebred.
But the President imposed one no-go for sleeping time: “Not in my bed.” (ANI)
