First Dog Bo Is on a Diet

Source

In a surprise appearance at the first ever "kids state dinner" Monday, President Obama told the young winners of the first lady's healthy recipe competition that the family dog was on a diet.

"I only have one request for you, and that is try not to drop any scraps on the floor," Obama told the group of assembled junior chefs in the East Room. "Because Bo... Bo is on a diet right now and he will eat anything that he sees, especially some of the tasty meals that you guys have prepared."


Wait, rewind. Bo is on a diet?

Whispers can only guess that FLOTUS is behind this. Over the past three years, Michelle Obama has made solving childhood obesity her goal as first lady, including launching a national exercise campaign called Let's Move! and planting a White House organic garden. Last week, she jokingly told Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas not to eat an Egg McMuffin.

OK, we'll admit it. In recent photos, Bo has been looking slightly beefy. But we had chalked that up to Portuguese water dogs' unruly, curly locks. Now we know POTUS must have been feeding him scraps beneath the table.

And there's a really cute gallery of Bo pictures at the source!
