Protecting the President is one thing, but has the Secret Service provided First Dog Bo with a secret double? With all the attention Bo has received he is certainly very much in the public eye, enough so that the Secret Service might feel having a double for him is a smart thing. Olivia Katrandjian wonders, does first dog Bo have a dog double in this article published by ABC News.
Does First Dog Bo Have a Dog Double?
Not only is the first dog, Bo, an integral part of the first family, but he’s also featured prominently in holiday decorations throughout the White House.
There is a Bo made of buttons, a Bo made of marshmallows and licorice, a four-and-a-half-foot tall felt Bo. Bo even made the Obama Christmas card, much to the chagrin of Sarah Palin, who wondered aloud on Fox News Radio why the card didn’t “accentuate faith, family and freedom.”
Michelle Obama told ABC’s Barbara Walters that Bo has an enviable life, and she wouldn’t mind being reincarnated as the family pet in her next life.
“He’s got a great life. He’s got it good,” said Michelle Obama.
Bo is so ubiquitous that he had people wondering if the Secret Service has a doggie doppelganger to keep the first dog safe.
On Wednesday, Bo was spotted with the president, Christmas shopping at a mall in Virginia. But just days earlier, on Sunday, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reported that a neighbor spotted him in Kailua at the multi-million-dollar estate where the first lady and the Obama girls Sasha and Malia have been waiting for the president since last week.
Did the first family fly Bo to Hawaii, then fly him back by Wednesday to keep the lonely president company? Or, perhaps, does the secret service have a Bo double?
The White House assured ABC News that Bo was never on the beach — he was in D.C. all along and caught a ride to the islands with the president on Air Force One.
Over the years the Secret Service has developed some sophisticated protection strategies for the first family and, Bo is certainly part of that family. As we can see above Bo is a focal point of many family activities and in order to protect him, we would not be a surprised if first dog Bo has a dog double to help secure his safety.
