First Dog Bo Rolling...

Bo the First Dog accompanied the First Family as they officially welcomed guests to the 2010 White House Easter Egg Roll from the Truman Balcony; First Lady Michelle Obama had the fluffy fellow on a leash as she formally kicked off the event, and then he walked down into the crowd with the Obamas. In the afternoon, your intrepid blogger ran into Bo, off-leash, trotting back into the West Wing after being walked on the South Lawn, mid-Roll, by his official caretaker, gardener Dale Haney (above, minus Haney).

Haney has been walking various Presidential Dogs for about three decades, and Bo is his latest charge. Bo had no comment for reporters who shouted questions at him, but Haney said hello...(above: Haney ahead of Bo, entering the Palm Court hallway between the White House and the West Wing)
