And now a Christmas message from the White House: Woof!
First Dog Bo Obama sat still long enough for a White House photographer to snap a picture of him for his official holiday portrait. But that's not all. There are Bo cookies, Bo sculptures and Bo ornaments adorning 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. this holiday season.
As pet blogger ohmidog points out, Bo is sitting next to a pair of potted poinsettias which are no-no plants in pet households. While not likely fatal, ingestion of the leaves can cause mouth irritation and stomach distress. (See ASPCA's Poison Control page for more holiday hazards for pets)
