White House dog leaked, Charlie-Bo

POLITICS - As leaks go, this one isn't so important, but it does have dog lovers in the United States and around the world talking.

Obamas' best-kept secret, the name, face and identity of the new White House dog, was leaked this weekend on the internet site firstdogcharlie.com, including photos and a history on its pedigree, a 6-month-old Portuguese Water Dog

A gift from Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, the dog was originally named Charlie but Obama's children Malia and Sasha have started calling him Bo (Barack Obama's initials), but also in honour of a cousin's cat of the same name and because Michelle Obama's father once went by the nickname Diddley (as in blues legend Bo Diddley).

Charlie-Bo has undergone extensive training by Kennedy's dog obedience team outside Washington. Its not yet decided where Charlie-Bo will sleep in the sprawling White House.

The Kennedys' issued the following statement regarding the new First Dog: "We couldn't be happier to see the joy that Bo is bringing to Malia and Sasha. We love our Portuguese Water Dogs and know that the girls – and their parents – will love theirs too."
