      My parents have had two PWD's and they are nuts! Fun fact #1: They have webbed toes. Fun fact #2: They were used by sailors to fetch whatever needed fetching in the water and also to drag nets to where they wanted the off season they were let loose to fend for themselves which is why they learned to eat EVERYTHING (as noted, especially shoes and microphones....don't know the nutritional value until you've eaten it :) )

      I love these behind the scenes bits. Many of us just love the Obama family, and are pleased as can be with the President. Being able to glimpse the normality of a day in the White House is a wonderful treat. Thanks for sharing, and please keep it up!

      Bo, you are one sweet little puppy, and I love you. You are with a very very good family, the obama's.

    17. makavieli 55 months ago

      i really wonder where the obama got their dog's name but no doubt Bo stands for Barack Obama
