First dog Bo finds a shady spot on the South Lawn of the White House, June 8

Looks like Bo was exhausted after the previous day’s meetings:

Kalpen Modi (White House): Yesterday afternoon, I had the privilege of leading a meeting with 10 incredible young Americans who had participated in the “100 Youth Roundtables” Initiative and came to Washington….

….Halfway through the meeting, President Obama dropped by (with Bo in tow), and after meeting everyone, took a seat and talked about a range of topics: from the economic situation to climate change, education, incarcerated youth, Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell, the Social Work and Reinvestment Act, and civic engagement….

Thanks Debz!

    I don’t blame the Bo, it is miserable here today. SO HOT!!!!!!!!!! I went to see a client this morning, and then came home. Can’t stand this heat!

    We haven’t seen Bo in ages! He’s probably wondering what all the commotion is about all the time…

    Bo is so darn cute. I get a kick out of those lopsided white socks. I can’t help but think about Teddy Kennedy when I see Bo. That was such a sweet gift for the Obama family.

    A dog’s life. I read somewhere that Bo hangs out with the ground guys during the day. I’m guessing he needs a lot of exercise.

    I thought is was so cute, that PBO brought Bo to the youth initiative mtg. On the WH web site Bo is listed as a participant.

    Bo is the perfect analogy for the Obamas: both elegant and relaxed.

    Awwwww Bo is the sweetest 🙂 . Yes Debz Bo’s contribution to the youth initiative mtg is very important after all he is a Obama! I love the second shot of him it looks like he is thinking “when is Sasha and Malia coming home? I am in the mood for some doggie love…play, play, play!” What a cutie 🙂

    He’s probably tired from watching his master at work.

    Was Bo given to the Obama Family by Ted Kennedys widow Vicky? Somehow I got that impression. Also O-f-A people, we really have to shift into overdrive as the GOP machine is coming on in a Full Court Press. After all their obstructionism and flat out refusing to do anything to help the President and the Democrats even when we were faced the most dangerous financial episode since the Great Depression, chosing instead to continuously attempt to hamper and deride the President .

    Am I the only one who breaks out into baby talk whenever a picture of Bo shows up? My friends are starting to look at me like I’m weirder than they originally thought. But Bo-bo is such a cutie-wutie, such a goood boy. what sweet baby! I just wanna cuddle him up and kiss his little dog nose. What a cutie, ha-yo baby, ha-yo. What a sweetie-pie. Ugghhhh!!! I love that dog, I could go on and on with the baby talk. *sigh*

    That dog Bo is such a cutie! And the President taking time to sit and chat with the Youth – PRICELESS! I am so proud that he is my leader of the free world.

    We have the hardest working President who will continue to need our support and hard work for him. I was missing Bo so much all last week, so this was a great move on someone’s part in the WH. Thanks so much for the post, Chipsticks. I love the fact that Bo seem to have a similar temperment as our POTUS. I love it when they are seen together. I am sure the “100 Youth Roundstables” groupd enjoyed the President dropping in on their meeting. You can sign up for this wonderful groups’ newsletter via e mail. That is how I keep up with them. I love the focus of the group, and I believe that this is very important to much of the future progress for our country, our great young people. Great to see them there with , I am sure great contributions.

    He is a cutie and appears to have a good temperament . Loved when FLOTUS got him to shake hands in one of the videos (Christmas special?) – so cool that they had a model of him at Christmas. Great family; great dog!
