The “Top Dog” arrives at the Whitehouse

Tuesday, April 14th, I turned my TV on to CNN around 5 PM to see what was going on in the world. There it was, the introduction of the Dog "Bo" all over the south lawn dragging around Obama girls first, then Mom took over and finally Barack Obama himself had to step in. I could not believe it. It looked like inauguration all over again – the media, the people, and all the pomp and show.

Believe it or not, Wolf Blitzer of CNN even had a special guest to discuss the mental health of the dog. The special guest stated that the dog's mental health was very important. Too much activity will have adverse effect on Bo's mental health. He may feel depressed. Obama must look after the needs of Bo otherwise it will be one unhappy puppy. My God, give him dog-Prozac and he should be happy – my neighbour did it.

Obama was asked where Bo would sleep and he said, "not in my bed." Then he went on to say that waterdogs (Bo is a waterdog) love tomatoes and that Michelle’s garden was in trouble. Okay pets are important but this was simply too much. Woof, woof. I changed to a Canadian channel to watch local news.

    You'd think that Obama was some kind of monarch-king the way the press fawns all over his little moves.
    It is very reminiscent of the times of Kings and Queens where the subjects and court jesters would try to emulate their rulers.

  2. CWTF, so far Obama personally has not behaved like an emperor or king the way Harper and Iggy(king in the making) have. So that is a good news.
