    "BO" is the name of the second largest city in Sierra Leone, after the capital Freetown.
    I hope the Obamas will one day visit Freetown and take a ride to BO.

    I wish them and their "BO" all the best in the White House.

    People get over yourselves, it's just another dog given by someone else. When my daughter saw it she gushed of course because she wants a dog so bad. Too bad she is allergic to them.

    My name is Bo, and the ridicule has already begun. Oh well.

    Obama didn't exactly tell the truth on November 4, when he said to his children that they were going to get a dog "to take with them to the White House." The Obamas have been in the White House for 4 months, and just now get the dog. My kids would have freaked out had I delayed a promise this long.

    @NClaw441....The President has said that the puppy would not arrive until the Spring, so thatb the girls would be more likelym to walk him (warmer weather).

    Also: He NEVER said that he would DEFINITELY get a rescue dog from the pound. And Bo is a rescue dog anyway, as his first home "didn't work out....

    Is this the sprint of the final days of the first 100 days? Between yesterday and today, you've won the heart of a nation. Hail to the Commander in Chief and his new little commander.

    You rock, Mr. President!

    When will BO give his acceptance speech as America's First Dog? Who will write it, what channel will it be on, and what time will he give it? I have not smiled this much since 11/02/2009.

    Wonderful picture. Great little dog for the girls. I hope they rethink his name before it's too late. Any trainer would tell you that Bo sounds too much like No.

    The Prez said to Bo " Look Bo its the press, lets high tail it outta here"

    ... dear Heaven...

    I think Obama should have his downtime and privacy and everything, but I don't think the media should engage in Obama worship by following up on things that have no bearing on the American people and the things we are going through.

    I think Obama is doing pretty good as president so far, so don't take this as a knock on him, but I don't recall the media posting pictures of Bush and his dog. I don't recall you guys gushing over his dog either. This is Obama worship, which is far beyond Obama support. There's a difference between between an Obama supporter and being an Obama worshipper. Learn it.
