Bo Obama Steals The Spotlight From Michelle At Christmas Event

Bo Obama Steals The Spotlight From Michelle At Christmas Event

Bo Obama apparently doesn’t like to share the spotlight.

At a reading of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, First Lady Michelle Obama got a surprise guest when Bo Obama jumped up on her lap amidst a group of surprised children. ABC News caught the moment on camera, as the shaggy dog jumped on the First Lady.

Michelle Obama, obviously used to her dog getting a little close, laughed off the interruption, Entertainment Tonight noted.

The reading was taking place in Washington, DC, at the Children’s National Medical Center. Michell sat down beneath an ornate Christmas tree while children and hundreds of other guests watched.

“This is exactly what he does at home,” the First Lady laughed. “He tries to beat Malia and Sasha to my lap.”

Michelle forged ahead with the reading, the four-year-old dog nuzzled on her lap like a puppy.

Often referred to as the “First Dog,” Bo Obama is a four-year-old neutered male Portuguese Water Dog. His debut in the White House came after months of speculation about what breed and identity the First Family would select for their future pet.

Barack Obama had originally said he would like to get a rescue dog, but said most of them are mutts and would not work in the White House. In the end, Malia Obama’s allergies brought the family to select a hypoallergenic breed.

The Portuguese Water Dog is a rare breed, with only about 50,000 in North America.

Here is video of Bo Obama interrupting the First Lady’s Christmas reading:

    This is so cute! The little kids had probably been carefully coached to behave themselves while sitting next to the First Lady; and they are trying to live up to the expectations…in spite of the "puppy" : ).

    Bo' has a Taxpayer Paid Handler that makes $106,000.00 per year, he cannot ride in the same a/c as the Obamas, the Muslims consider that to be un clean! Bo rides in a Business Jet to and from the Obama's vacation places at more Taxpayer expense!

    Very cute…Michelle & Bo. America has a beautiful first lady and first dog. Pay no attention to Romney voter sore losers. They are just haters for life and Obama is president for 4 more year it most hurt them racist to the bone

    Has Michelle ever cleaned up his poop or given him a bath or clipped his nails? This article is disgusting. The only time she sees the dog is when she wants publicity.

  17. Sheila Williamson

    "You a hater too!!!" Not only is that response tired and sorely overused, your grammar is atrocious as well. Mrs. Obama doesn't need an illiterate hood rat fighting her battles. The First Lady rises above the rubbish by not responding to it. You should do the same.

  18. Kathy Operschall

    If that's the case then why did he jump on her lap???? She gives him a lot of attention and love and she most likely thought he was trained enough to appear in her reading. Obviously not, since dogs love their owners and can be pretty unpredictable. Bo would not have done that had he not had a relationship with with Michelle. I know because I have 2 Shi Tzu brothers who are loved dearly and both are opposites. Obviously, you're a Republican…..

    Someone sounds a LITTLE prejudice. Sorry, but we FINALLY elected an African American President. I think that's great and he's doing his best to clean up Bush's mess …..

    And only a person who does not like black people would say that. Ignorance….

  21. Kai Smith

    One of the few MILF first lady's that we've ever had. 4 more years till we have to look at another old wrinkled hag on tv every other day!

  22. Kai Smith

    That dogs don't jump on you like that unless they know and love you.

  23. Jennifer Edwin

    Naughty. Very, very naughty. I hope Santa skipped your house this year.

  24. Dannetta Hillhouse

    well if you look closely, one is a dog the other is human, one is little and the other is big, one can talk and the other cant, one is black and white and the other is brown.

    I won't comment on the picture but the statement about thinking months about what breed to get is a crock of crap. If they thought about it so hard they could have paid (taxpayer paid) dog experts to search shelters and rescues for a hypoallergenic dog. They were given this rare dog shortly after they moved into the White House by Ted Kennedy. I think the statement that a shelter dog is a mutt and would not fit in the White House is something you would expect from this arrogant self appointed messiah. I don't believe he is a purebred, he is a mutt, and he definately doesn't fit in the White House either. This whole articleis discusting.
