Obama says goodbye to his friend Bo  After more than ten years outside the country

Obama says goodbye to his friend Bo After more than ten years outside the country

Former President Barack Obama and his family had to bid farewell to Poe, the Portuguese water dog who has been a part of their lives for more than ten years on Saturday. “We lost a close friend and comrade,” Obama wrote on Twitter.




Poe said, “He was a friendly and constant presence in our lives, happy to see us on our good and bad days and every day in between. He endured all the troubles of life in the White House, had a big bark but no bite, and he liked to jump into the pool in the summer, and he was not bothered. From kids, he lived around the dinner table to eat leftovers, and his hair was great. It was exactly what we needed and more than we expected. We’ll miss him so much. “


Michelle Obama saw the four-legged friend as her son. “I have two girls and a boy,” she said on David Letterman’s talk show in 2012. As befits a mother praised the dog. “Boo awesome. He is the smartest dog on the planet. “

Even when David Letterman expressed doubts about the Portuguese Water Dog’s behavior, the First Lady assured him that Poe had only positive qualities. “He is incredibly kind, well mannered and has a very busy schedule.” And she jokingly said, “I think we should have one manager for him.” .

Anger

With the purchase of Bo, Obama unleashed a global frenzy. There was a Portuguese water dog running everywhere. Breeders wondered if they should be pleased with the high demand for the breed, known for its hypoallergenic mushroom.

Sunny

In 2013, Sunny, also a Portuguese Water Dog, joined Boo. The president declared in August of that year that “the busy schedule of Malia and Natasha made Poe feel a little lonely”. “And Michael and I also know what’s coming,” Obama said, likely indicating when his daughters will leave the house. He said, “We need to have someone wait for us at the door when we get home.”
