There was quite a crowd at the White House today to see the Obamas show off Bo, the new presidential puppy. Bo was on a leash handled by Michelle Obama, and the puppy showed some vigorous energy in front of the crowd of reporters.

President Obama made a few remarks, noting that Portuguese water dogs like tomatoes, and thus Michelle's garden was in danger. Sasha, the President's youngest daughter, pointed out that they would have to teach Bo to swim, a skill which apparently does not come naturally to Portuguese water dogs.

Overall, the First Family seemed quite pleased with their new dog.
