Bo Obama stars in White House holiday card
Dog of the season.
He inspects the tree, inspires the decorations, and now, Bo Obama is front and center on this year’s White House holiday card, which features a photo-like painting of the Portuguese Water Dog dashing through the snow in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The card, illustrated by Iowa artist Larassa Kabel, was released on Thursday. Kabel says that while she made the painting, her own dog, Beans, a Boston Terrier-Pug mix, sat by her side in the studio, as he does each day.
Her illustration is based on a photo taken of Bo in 2010 — and Kabel says she gave Bo a scarf in her interpretation to add dimension.
We’ll be watching to see where this famous pooch turns up next.
