Almost Bo Time!

CNN is flooding the zone on the Bo Obama Story: as we count down to the dog’s any-minute-now debut, a Portuguese Water Hound (3-year-old Maggie, a Bo look-alike) sniffs around in The Situation Room and The Dog Whisperer, Cesar Milan, waits to analyze live via satellite.

UPDATE: Post-Dog-Debut question from Wolf Blitzer to The Dog Whisperer: “The dog’s name is Bo. It rhymes with No.” Might this, Blitzer wonders, confuse the dog? The Whisperer is not concerned: “The dogs don’t have a problem with the word. They have a problem with the energy behind the word.”
