Bo and the Presidential Christmas

As our President’s Day celebration continues, this is a shout out to all dog-lovers.  I visited the Newseum this fall, and, more than anything, I was captivated by the First Dogs:  American Presidents and Their Pets.  While it appears that no president has had the good sense to own an Australian Shepherd, the Obama family made Bo, their Portuguese Water dog, the center of the White House decorations in 2011.  The black and white dog, re-created in marzipan, licorice and marshmallows, felt, and, even garbage bags, guarded almost every room.

Bo assembled from trash bags.

Our friend Gini, who receives only a token photograph of our dogs each Christmas, has something in store for 2012.  I can wait to start designing our Blue Christmas (and Peso) replicas!
