Here's a picture of Bo, formerly known as Charley, formerly known as Amigo's New Hope, when he was just a puppy. It's from the breeder's web site. Cute, no?

Meanwhile, the Associated Press is floating a conspiracy theory that Bo's arrival at the White House—purchased by an owner in Washington, D.C., from the same litter that the Kennedy's bought a puppy from, then suspiciously returned to the breeder months later—was carefully orchestrated so the Obama's could get the pup they wanted and still look like they were rescuing a homeless dog. In the absence of any evidence whatsoever, we concur.
