Meet Solo! Bo Obama's Big Brother
Do you see how much Bo looks like his older brother Solo? The similarities don’t end there: Both pups like to chew things. Bo likes feet; Solo is a shoe man.
ICE CREAM, YOU SCREAM
Solo loves peanut-butter ice cream, says Douglas. “He closes his eyes and slowly licks the ice cream from the cup until it is all gone!”
Most Portuguese Water Dogs get a close, retriever-like clip, but Solo wears the more stylish lion clip.
Solo is an athlete at heart. He is learning to run through tunnels, climb an A-frame, walk a see-saw and other agility maneuvers.
Bo and Solo’s mom, Penny, lives with Art and Martha Stern at the Amigo Portuguese Water Dog Kennel in Texas, where the Obamas adopted Bo. This momma is “kinda pushy,” says Stern. “She tries to run things, but we’ve got an older female that’s actually the alpha.”
