First Dog BO leaps onto First Lady's lap while she reads Xmas Carol to ill children

O.K., I don't do "cute" outside of the Lounge, revering as I do the GD SoP, but the NY Daily News says this is "Politics" and the GD SoP cites "current events" and the lovable cuteness is just overwhelming...

Politics
Bo, the White House dog, takes in ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ from First Lady Michelle Obama’s lap


Bo loves a good Christmas story, especially when Michelle Obama is reading it.


(Pic’s insert reads: The First Lady was reading the Christmas classic to sick children at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington D.C. when the Portuguese Water Dog Bo leapt onto her lap and commanded her attention.)





Christmas is the time to pull the focus from the first lady.

If you're Bo, the first dog, that is. Days after being featured on the White House Christmas card, Bo stole the show while Michelle Obama read a classic Christmas story to children in Washington.

In a newly released video from the White House, the first lady can be seen preparing to read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas at the Children's National Medical Center on Dec. 18 - a tradition for first ladies since the 1950s - when Bo took a giant leap and ended up on mom's lap, paws akimbo.

"This is exactly what he does at home. He tries to beat Malia and Sasha to my lap," Obama said with a laugh before beginning to read to the gathered children. (Bo stayed put, happily oversized on his perch.)

1. "Leaps" was quite an overstatement.

lol. but Bo does show that he thinks he is a lap dog and he is use to sitting in that lap.

5. Pets tend to give hints to the world about how they're treated at home

Obviously Bo has been taught his place in the family hierarchy.
