Throughout their father’s twenty-two month campaign for president, Malia and Sasha Obama begged their parents for a dog. Finally, when their father became the 44th President of the United States, he rewarded their patience and good behavior in his victory speech: "Malia and Sasha will get their new puppy."

Would the girls choose a Foxhound like President George Washington’s? Or a chocolate Labrador Retriever like the Clintons’? Maybe a shelter dog? Finally, on February 25, 2009, they decided to look for a Portuguese Water Dog to move into the White House. Art rendered in watercolor, gouache, and pencil.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Weatherford makes the Bo Obama story fresh by keeping the focus on the First Family. Children see how Malia and Sasha worked hard to earn their pup by graciously tolerating the rigors of campaigning. They read about the various steps of the selection process, including the allergy dilemma. The media frenzy over which breed, then what name, is treated with good humor, as are the "duties" of the First Dog: meeting the presidential helicopter, fetching presidential slippers, negotiating treats, etc. The author completes the story by assuring readers that "pets everywhere have a voice in the White House. 'Woof! Woof!'" Bates's realistic illustrations in watercolor, pencil, and gouache pack in the fun. From the sisters' secret celebration behind the election-night podium, to a cozy dog-research session in a canopied bed, the illustrator keeps the youngsters' points of view at the forefront. Weatherford wraps up with a page about 11 other presidents' pets.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
