President Barack Obama has fulfilled the promise made during his acceptance speech to daughters Malia and Sasha. The family has made their much-anticipated decision for First Dog, landing on a Portuguese Water Dog, of the same lineage as the “Porties” of Senator Ted Kennedy. The initial hoopla that Obama cannot accept gifts has since dissolved as it’s been revealed that the pup was previously sold to a private owner and had been returned to a Texas kennel, so it is technically being “re-homed” to the Obama residence. The newly named “Bo” (rumored to be after Michelle‘s late father) will have a Presidential homecoming ceremony tomorrow, when he is presented to the Obamas by Senator Kennedy. [Source: TMZ]
