Finally the day has arrived when the First Family has gotten the new pup President Barack Obama promised to Sasha and Malia. It's a cute as a button 6-month old Portugese water dog named Bo Diddley.

The Bo part comes from Sasha and Malia's cousin's cat of the same name and Diddley was Michelle's father's nickname. The pup was a gift from Senator Ted Kennedy and was said to have made it's first appearance at the White House in a top secret meeting weeks ago.
According to the Washington Post, the Obamas had intended on finding a shelter dog, but Portuguese water dogs rarely end up there, so the First Family will reportedly make a donation to the Washington, D.C. Humane Society.
I could just hug this puppy forever. It's sooo cute! I'm sure Sasha and Malia are super excited - they most certainly deserve it.
