White House dog Bo knows baseball -- cards

The White House has released an official portrait of first dog Bo -- but even better than the photo, in our opinion, is the fact that it has been cleverly packaged in the form of a baseball card (you can even download a larger PDF file of it at the White House website).

We’ve already learned some fun facts about Bo since he arrived at the White House in April (he knows how to shake hands, for instance, and he’s a night owl who enjoys biting people’s feet).


The newly released baseball card offers some more ‘stats’ about America’s favorite Portuguese water dog, including the insight that, although Bo is a Portuguese water dog, he doesn’t know how to swim. Another tidbit: Bo’s favorite food is ‘Tomatoes -- or toys.’ (Um, Mr. President, we hope you’re only feeding your pup ripe tomatoes -- the green part of the plant is toxic to pets.)
