Did Bo The ‘First Dog’ Return From Hawaii for Obama’s Photo Op?


The White House Dossier reports the following:

Bo Obama was supposed to be in Hawaii. Instead, he showed up at President Obama’s side Wednesday shopping for treats at Pet Smart

According to Michelle Obama’s press office, the first dog was planning to go to Hawaii with the first lady and the Obama daughters. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that he in fact had gone there. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser quoted an eyewitness who said he had seen the Portuguese Water Dog having his walk.

So what is Bo doing back in Washington shopping at PetSmart?

Either these reports are mistaken, or Bo was told his vacation was over and that he had to return to the White House to keep a lonely president company – and participate in a silly photo op presenting Obama as an average guy who likes to head out to the PetSmart.

If Bo returned from Hawaii, who paid for his flight?

It’s possible he hitched a ride on a return flight of the Air Force plane that brought Michelle from Hawaii, which wouldn’t have really added much to Michelle’s more than $100,000 price tag for her solo trip.

Or maybe he commandeered his own Air Force jet.

  1. I’m sure he’ll fly separately with his own entourage; in case anything happens to the President, he’ll take over. Well, he & Biden are pretty much intellectual equals in my opinion.

    Who’s paying for this jaunt? You & I are!

  2. #2- this story is a drudgereport headline right now. Guess he’s foolish too.

    Where there is smoke there is fire.

    If this was Bush’s dog, Communist News Network (CNN) would be running this nonstop with all their piggish analysts discussing it.

    Good call YWN!

  3. Odd… I don’t see a single, solitary, other shopper in the store. Just the store clerk, the dog and obama.

    I guess the Secret Service threw everyone else out before his Excellency entered for his photo op.

  4. “According to Michelle Obama’s press office, the FIRST DOG WAS PLANNING to go to Hawaii with the first lady and the Obama daughters.”
    What a smart creature! He was planning!

  5. Your president & his family are nothing more than elitists. They are living the Life of Riley on OUR backs. They tell us we have to cut but all they do is spend spend spend OUR money.

  6. I thought the first dog was still home. Remember it was Obama HIMSELF that referred to himself as a dog. That of course prompted many to see that BH this is min ha’shomayim and part of the process of the geulah sh’laima because now our leaders are like dogs.

    Therefore, I would have to say that Bo is NOT the “first” dog or the “second” dog, but rather the THIRD dog.

  7. Of the first 9 comments (2 from one person), 8 are worried about the Obamas’ family dog. If three more people make similar comments, we will have a meshuginah minyan.
