Presidential: adj. of or relating to the President
Pooch: n. affectionate slang for dog
Portuguese: adj. from the country of Portugal
Today’s biggest news story (apart from the rescue of the captain from the Somali pirates…)
The Obama family got its dog – a Portuguese Water Dog they’ve named “Bo,” after Bo Diddley. Rumor has it that the president is already calling him “Diddley.”
One wag suggested calling him “Bark Obama”…
Bo is six months old and comes from the same kennel that supplies Teddy Kennedy with pooches – in fact he’s a gift from Teddy.
I’m a poodle person myself, but I can certainly see the charm in this dog. Poodles, however, have shaved faces and feet, which cut way down on tracked in mud and food-caked mustaches.
