WASHINGTON - APRIL 14: U.S. President Barack Obama's new dog, a Portuguese water dog named Bo, sniffs a microphone during his introduction to the White House press corps on the South Lawn of the White House April 14, 2009 in Washington, DC. The six-month-old puppy is a gift from Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) who owns several Portuguese water dogs himself. This breed of dog is considered a good pet for children who have allergies, as Malia does. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) *** Local Caption *** Bo
