Bo Obama Channels Easter Bunny Before White House Egg Roll
by Alison SchwartzMove over, Easter Bunny.
The cutest, fluffiest, most precious mascot of the holiday is somebody – make that somebunny – else this year.
The ears most definitely fit Bo Obama. Literally.
"Happy Easter," President Barack Obama wrote on Twitter Sunday, sharing a snapshot of the first dog accessorized for the occasion.
The 4-year-old pooch has been filling in for the Easter Bunny since last week, when he helped promote Monday's 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll in a 50-second video spot that showcased his sleuthing skills.
He also lent his paw at Monday's festivities in Washington, D.C., where he joined the president to read to young attendees.
