Look at this cute little guy. He is a black and white Portuguese Water Dog. This particular dogs name is Amigo’s New Hope aka Bo. Bo Obama to be exact. He is the Presidential family dog otherwise known as “The First Dog”. Bo was a gift from Senator Edward Kennedy to President Obama’s daughters Malia and Sasha. Bo became part of the Obama family on March 15, 2009.
Since Bo has entered the White House and has taken on his new title "The First Dog", the Portuguese Water Dog Breed has had a surge in popularity since the breed’s introduction to the U.S. in the late 1960’s.
Portuguese Water Dogs make a wonderful energetic family pet. They are classified as a working dog. They enjoy being given jobs to do that demonstrate their intelligence, strength and stamina. “Porties” as they are also known as a breed that sheds less fur than an average breed dog. This has miss lead some to believe it is a hypoallergenic breed.

Bo The First Dog of the White House. What a lucky dog to have such a large yard to romp in. =)
As with all breeds, please research the breed to see if it is a good match for your family before bringing one home to your family.

Maltese Gift Bag Auction I was approached a few months ago to create a few items for a gift bag for a Maltese breed auction in May. American Maltese National Specialty Dog Show on May 9, 2010. http://www.americanmaltese.org/index.html
I join a new team on Etsy called Primos Pawtourage. We started with wanting to do a gift bag for the Maltese breed. Since then we have decided to add other breeds. I believe we will be doing bulldogs and chow chows soon. If interested in a doggie gift bag please visit PrimosPawtourage at http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrimosPawtourage
