The Obamas' new puppy will be named "Bo."

As BBR relayed yesterday, the Obamas have chosen a 6-month old, male Portuguese Water Dog from a breeder in Texas--with a little facilitation by the Kennedy family.

Named Charlie by his original owners, the dog was given back to the breeder and "re-homed" with the Obamas. The Washington Post has the back story on the new name:

Malia and Sasha chose the name, because their cousins have a cat named Bo and because first lady Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaMelania Trump to attend Barbara Bush's funeral The Hill says goodbye to 50 Most Beautiful Family, friends mourn death of Barbara Bush MORE's father was nicknamed Diddley, a source said.
