Bo Obama Adorns White House Christmas Card

Posted on

It wouldn’t be Christmas at the White House without Bo Obama.

After inspecting this season’s holiday decorations – in which he is prominently featured through a life-size replica and Bo-flake ornaments – the first dog also graces the Obama family’s Christmas card.

Iowa artist Larassa Kabel’s painting depicts a snow-covered Bo running across the White House’s North Lawn, an homage to this 2010 snapshot, which caught the 4-year-old playing in the snow during a February blizzard.

“He is my son,” Michelle Obama said in March of the Portuguese Water Dog, whose paw print also appears in the interior of the card alongside the First Family’s signatures. “He’s a very sweet dog.”
