Benjy And Dachsund Pals Welcome Bo


Benjy and his four-legged pals have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Bo, the First Puppy that the adorable Sasha and Malia will dote on and who will get to fetch his ball on the White House's luscious lawns. At last! As the entire world knows by now, Bo is to be inaugurated, er, I mean greeted by the Obama family today.
So Benjy, ever prodigal when it comes to dispensing woofs of advice and wisdom, got together a pack of dachshunds he met over the months in the Los Angeles area, to send young Bo a big welcome bark from California. In their name, and in the name of all the pooches across the nation, here's Benjy's statement:

[Cue in intensive tail wagging]

Dear Bo! We salute you! Enjoy the many perks of life at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Always pose gracefully for legitimate cameras but growl at the papparazzi, make friends with the White House chefs, and be a good dog to the two lovely, lovely presidential little girls!

[More enthusiastic tail wagging]

5.30 pm Eastern Time Update: Bo has arrived! Watch the super fun video (check out Sasha's cute pink socks, too), or watch this slideshow (my favorite pics are #2 and #4)

What a little gang those dogs are.....and very politic too.

sealaura said...

absolutely precious! Benjy is very articulate, if the modeling career does not work out maybe PR? he is in LA after all :)

Esti said...

Pero qué perros más bonitos!

J Elaine said...

Laughing out loud! Emphasis on befriending the chefs!

A World in a PAN said...

Nessa is right, they are adroable, starting with Benjy who is 100% adorbale.

Mary-Laure said...

SEALAURA - what a great idea! He's indeed very shrewd and smart...

J ELAINE - Benjy loves chefs - like you!

Spangler Cummings said...

I knew that the "Oracle of Malibu" wouldn't let this occasion go unnoticed. Hope the Dachsunds all have their bow ties and cummerbunds handy, if needed. It is convenient for Bo to always have his (not to mention his permanent waterproofing).

lauren said...

a pack of dachshunds - los angeles badgers beware! a lovely welcome indeed.

Gabbi said...

Benji is such an intelligent pup, must be so proud!xx

Mary-Laure said...

SPANGLER - ah yes, Bo is black-tie ready for all those formal occasions at the White House...

LAUREN - your comment made me laugh, but the badgers (and rats) of LA are probably shivering with fear.

LexyB said...

Do you think the dachsunds would actually like to meet the Portugese water dog?

Joyce said...

Your pups are not only cute they sure know how to roll out the red carpet for a new friend.

drollgirl said...

YOUR BABIES ARE SO CUTE!!! i just love them.

J Elaine said...

Ahem, does anyone (else) think that Bo resembles Tao?!

jane said...

Great post! :)

Mary-Laure said...

LEXY B - as far as Benjy is concerned, he loves meeting all dogs, so I am sure he's be thrilled to play with Bo...

J ELAINE - uncanny! A black Tao!

DROLLGIRL - well apart from Benjy, they are not mine. I'd love to have many dachshunds but I only have one.

Yo tengo una triste historia de casualidad...
La semana pasada murió Nemo , el perro de mi papa, con 15 añitos . No sufrió ( fue derrame cerebral). estamos muy tristes aun... lo curioso es que Nemo era un perro de aguas ( español)igualito a Bo ( que es portugués)pero con colita corta.

Mary-Laure said...

SAMMI - I agree, Bo rocks!

LENORENEVERMORE - well Bo at least is tuxedo-ready.

DEBRA - and lucky lucky Sasha and Malia!

MARCI - que tristeza... La muerte de un perro siempre es un dolor enorme, un verdadero duelo. Espero que tu papá no esta demasiado triste?
Me gustaria ver fotos de Nemo en tu blog. Lindo nombre, Nemo.
