Former United States of America president, Barack Obama has announced the demise of family’s beloved dog, Bo.
Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle took to their respective Instagram page where they announced the death of the dog.
According to Michelle, Bo died on Saturday afternoon, after a long battle with cancer.
“This afternoon was a difficult one for our family. We said goodbye to our best friend—our dog, Bo—after a battle with cancer,” Michelle Obama announced on her Instagram page.
“On the campaign trail in 2008, we promised our daughters that we would get a puppy after the election. At the time, Bo was supposed to be a companion for the girls. We had no idea how much he would mean to all of us.”
Michelle Obama described Bo as a friendly and happier dog.
“This past year, with everyone back home during the pandemic, no one was happier than Bo. All his people were under one roof again—just like the day we got him. I will always be grateful that Bo and the girls got to spend so much time together at the end.
As a family, we will miss Bo dearly. But we are thankful that he lived such a joyful life full of snuggles, games of fetch, and evenings spent lying on the couch.
We also know we weren’t the only ones who cared for Bo, and are grateful for all the love you showed him over the years. Please hug the furry members of your family a little closer tonight—and give them a belly rub from us.”
