The Daily Treat: President Obama Gets Greeted by Bo

Originally posted 06/12/2013 01:00PM

They may be the President and the First Dog, but at the end of the day, Bo Obama is just a pup waiting for his pop to come home.

The White House's official photographer, Pete Souza, shared a photo of President Barack Obama and his loyal pal enjoying a sweet reunion in the Oval Office on Tuesday. The pic followed one posted earlier in the day of a serious-looking Commander-in-Chief walking into his White House office while his furry friend looked up at him from the floor.

Move 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.

Will he be able to sniff them out?

Ahead of the 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll, which will take place Monday on the South Lawn in Washington, D.C., Bo Obama received a special first look at this year's commemorative eggs.

Putting his sleuthing skills to work in the clip above, the 4-year-old pup searches high and low – including inside a tree and around the vegetable garden – for the multi-colored keepsakes, which include a special teal egg that's marked with his paw print and name.

Puppy Love! Bo Obama Gets Asked Out on Doggy Date

Bo Obama Gets Asked Out on Doggy Date

Originally posted 03/22/2013 07:00PM

He may be only 4 years old, but it seems Bo Obama is already a ladies' man.

A Goldendoodle named Ramona, who resides at the Oregon Humane Society, has taken her affections for the first dog to the Internet, posting a video that asks Bo to serve as the grand marshal for the Humane Society's Doggie Dash fundraiser in May.

In the clip, Ramona tries to contact Bo through Twitter, Facebook and even over the phone before settling on a letter as the best way to ask him out. But with the entire saga now available to view on YouTube, perhaps the longing lady will get her wish, much like the high school teen who asked Kate Upton to prom or the Marines who scored dates from Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake.

It wouldn't be Christmas at the White House without Bo Obama.

After inspecting this season's holiday decorations – in which he is prominently featured through a life-size replica and Bo-flake ornaments – the first dog also graces the Obama family's Christmas card.

Iowa artist Larassa Kabel's painting depicts a snow-covered Bo running across the White House's North Lawn, an homage to this 2010 snapshot, which caught the 4-year-old playing in the snow during a February blizzard.

Bo Obama Featured in White House Christmas Decorations

To kick off the holiday season at the White House on Wednesday, First Lady Michelle Obama brought along a very special helper: Bo.

The Portuguese Water Dog helped his Mom unveil the Christmas decor that will deck the halls of the Washington, D.C., manor this season and he's even featured prominently in the estate's adornments.

In the East Garden Room, which was decorated with children in mind, a life-size replica of Bo greets visitors, and "Bo-flakes" hang from the trees. Forty such ornaments are scattered throughout the White House, and an edible Bo also stands guard in front of the gingerbread house located in the State Dining Room.

Special Delivery! Bo Obama Helps Receive White House Christmas Tree

Originally posted 11/26/2012 06:15PM

Forget eating leftovers – Bo Obama had some official business to attend to the day after Thanksgiving.

On Nov. 23, the First Dog helped Michelle Obama and First Daughters Sasha and Malia welcome a 19-foot Fraser fir into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The tree arrived on a horse-drawn carriage, which Bo was a little apprehensive of at first. The First Lady had to pull Bo around to it so that he would inspect the tree with she and the girls.

Mrs. O proudly gave the thumbs up to the towering tree, confirming that it will be suitable for display in the Blue Room, just as it has every year since 1966.

'Tis the season!

Michelle Obama and daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11 – assisted by their not-so-little helper Bo Obama – welcomed a Christmas tree to the White House on Friday.

The 19-ft. Fraser fir from Peak Farms in Jefferson, N.C., arrived on a red and green wagon drawn by two Clydesdale horses while the Marine Band played the classic carol "Oh Christmas Tree."

How festive!

Barack Obama promised that the best is yet to come – but sadly, that doesn't mean a playmate for Bo Obama.

During his victory speech early Wednesday morning, the President said to First Daughters Sasha and Malia that there will be only one four-legged friend roaming the halls of the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, for now.

"You're growing up to be two strong, smart, beautiful young women, just like your Mom," he said. "And I'm so proud of you guys. But I will say that for now: One dog's probably enough."

It's the campaign homestretch, but the Obama girls didn't let that stop them from throwing their favorite dog a birthday party.

Five of Sasha and Malia's dog-owning friends brought their pups to the White House on Monday's no-school holiday for a pre-birthday playdate with Bo, who turned 4 on Tuesday.

"Mrs. Obama and the girls sang him 'Happy Birthday,'" a White House source tells PEOPLE. "There were doggy treats and toys and running around on the South Lawn."
