Bo Obama: Happy Birthday to America’s First Dog! (PHOTOS)

By Amy Fleck |

Two days ago, October 9th, was Bo Obama’s 4th birthday.  Bo, aka the First Dog, is a Portuguese Water Dog.  He is a hypo-allergenic breed with curly, hair-like fur and is tuxedo/black and white.

Bo has a brother Rico, who lives in Houston, Texas.  Undoubtedly, the White House fervently hopes that Rico isn’t the kind of brother that Billy was to former President Jimmy Carter.  With the election right around the corner, the White House doesn’t want Rico to be making trouble.

No matter what your politics, everyone can agree Bo has been an adorable and cuddly addition to the White House.
