Bo Obama has a big decision on his paws.
The First Dog received a marriage proposal via YouTube from a two-year-old Goldendoodle named Ramona. The video was made by the Oregon Humane Society, part of the non-profit organization’s annual fundraiser for animal shelters.
The 26th annual event, which brings thousands of dogs and their owners to the Portland waterfront, aims to raise $450,000 for animal shelters.
The video shows Ramona dreaming about Bo Obama and thinking about becoming the “First Dog-Lady.”
In the video, thought bubbles appear by Ramona’s head to narrate her thoughts.
“Oh no! I don’t have a date for Doggie Dash!” she thinks.
Ramona goes on to send tweets and Facebook messages to Bo Obama, and, when she doesn’t get a response she tries a different method — the telephone.
“What do you mean he doesn’t have a cell phone?” Ramona thinks.
Finally, Ramona decides to send a paw-written invitation, complete with pink hearts.
Ramona might be trying to copy the success of a few other brave YouTubers who used videos for a big invite. A couple of years ago, two separate Marines made videos trying to score celebrity dates to the Marine Corps ball — and it worked. Both Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis agreed to accompany the lucky Marines brave enough to make the YouTube videos.
Another big request came this week. High school senior Jake Davidson made a tongue-in-cheek video asking swimsuit model Kate Upton to his prom.
“You’re the ying to my yang, I’m Jewish, 5’9″ on a really good day — and I can’t dance at all,” said the bluntly honest Jake, “You’re Christian, 5’10”, and that Cat Daddy video should have won an Oscar for best short film — you could say this is destiny.”
Jake’s bold gambit worked — Kate said yes within hours of the video going viral.
There’s no word yet on whether Bo Obama accepted his invitation.
