    Was presented to the media by the Obama family (April 14, 2009)
    Barack Obama concerned and offended some people by accepting Bo as a gift instead of adopting a dog from an animal shelter or rescue center as promised.
    Some believe that his popularity might increase business at abusive dog breeding facilities.
    His breed is promoted as being hypoallergenic, which some animal experts dispute.
    Michelle Obama described his behavior as 'kind of crazy' at times.
    He especially enjoys chewing on people's feet.
    He and Barack Obama share the same initials.
    He shares his name with music legend Bo Diddley.
    Malia and Sasha Obama were inspired to give him his name because their maternal grandfather was nicknamed 'Diddley.'
    Ted Kennedy received Bo from the popular Amigo's Portuguese Water Dog Kennels in Boyd, Texas.
    His breed was suggested to the Obama family because of Malia's allergy issues.
    He is part of a dog breed known for its fitness, obedience, and intelligence.
    He greatly helped to increase the popularity of his breed in various countries after he became First Dog.
    Several children's books featuring him were published soon after he received media attention.
