‘First Dog’ Bo Now on Diet

President Obama revealed on Monday that Bo, the family dog, is on a diet, U.S. News & World Report reported.

In an event with young winners from Michelle Obama’s healthy recipe competition, Obama warned those gathered “not to drop any scraps on the floor.”

 

“Because Bo... Bo is on a diet right now and he will eat anything that he sees, especially some of the tasty meals that you guys have prepared," he said.

The First Lady has been an advocate for ending child obesity with her Let’s Move! initiative. Bo is 3 years old.

As U.S. News put it, “In recent photos, Bo has been looking slightly beefy. But we had chalked that up to Portuguese water dogs' unruly, curly locks. Now we know POTUS must have been feeding him scraps beneath the table.”
