Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that the Obamas fiiiinally got a new puppy, ending months of pointless speculation about what kind of dog would eventually take up residence in the White House. Well, earlier this week we found out (and, hundreds of Washington reports scurried around in panic, “ohhhh fuuuck! What are we supposed to write about NOW?”).  

My favorite story about Bo, the Portuguese Water dog, appeared in the Washington Post last weekend.  It’s worth a read, if only to marvel at the astounding number of dog puns author Manuel Roig-Franzia managed to squeeze into the article.  

You can read it here.  You’re woof-come. No, that didn’t work? Eh, I tried.
