President Barack Obama runs down a hallway with the first family's new puppy, Bo, a Portuguese Water Dog. Obama and his wife, Michelle, promised daughters Malia and Sasha that the family would get a dog after the presidential campaign. As commander in chief, the president is eligible for veterinary services from the Army Veterinary Corps.
