Watch out, Socks and Barney, Bo Obama has a new book out

Recent presidential pets boast an impressive list of accomplishments: Socks Clinton "wrote" a diary. Barney Bush starred in nearly a dozen "BarneyCam" films. Now Bo Obama is "narrating" a new book.

"Bo Obama: The White House Tails" is a 40-page comic book being published this week by Blue Water Productions, in which President Barack Obama's one year-old Portugese water dog narrates stories about presidential pets, including George Washington's horse, Nelson, and a longhorn cow named Ofelia [sic] owned by George W. Bush.

The Chicago Tribune even reviewed the comic book, saying that Bo Obama has a "magic touch."

White House officials declined to comment about the unauthorized use of the dog's likeness, but ITK suspects that, much as they do for the human residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., they do not approve.
