President Obama admits he cleans up after his dog
Dec 22, 2010
World leaders - they're just like us! According to CBS News, President Obama recently admitted that he never fails to clean up after his dog.
The nation's 44th President spoke with a group of elementary school students who broached the subject of his adorable pup, Bo.
"Sometimes I have to scoop up his poop, because I don't want to just leave it in the lawn!" he told the children. "If you guys have a dog, you've got to walk your dog, too - and clean up after him."
The Obamas welcomed Bo, a Portuguese water dog, into the White House over a year ago after the President promised his daughters that they could get a puppy. The canine was chosen because of his hypoallergenic coat, a necessary feature for Malia Obama, who has allergies to the animal.
Most states have laws stating that pet owners who do not clean up after their pooch may face a hefty fine. Because of this, parents of dogs are advised to carry a pooper scooper with them at all times.
