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!

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)
