      Great shot! Mr O is probably fast on his feet, but my guess Bo wins in a serious footrace.

      Great image. I was trying to figure out why this image seemed so striking and I think it's partly because President Obama's feet are both in mid-air; he's not touching the ground. This really emphasizes the sense of motion.

      I'm the Chief Usher for a group called The White House, and we'd love to have this added to the photo pool.

      The first time I saw this picture I thought this was an excellent photo. I really hope that one day I can be able to get excellent shots like this one.
      I'm glad this one was posted!

      Hey uploader, check your tagged date - IIRC, the dog didn't arrive at the White House until around Easter - this picture was likely taken 4/15 not 3/15.

      Great shot tho, very cute and humanizing moment.

      You can see that the dog and the man bonded right away! Iconic photo!

      This photo lives on my desktop at work and every time I feel stressed, I think of the great pressures on Barack Obama. I love this unguarded, joyful moment knowing how much pure pleasure a dog can bring.
