In another grim news, on May 8, 2021, the first family of the United States, the Obamas, have announced the death of their beloved dog Bo, aged 12, often referred to as the "First dog." Bo held a special place in President Barack Obama's heart and his family. A Portuguese water dog breed, he was given to the family after months of speculations about his breed and identity.
Bo was Barack's promised gift to his daughters Sasha and Malia in return for their time spent on his presidential campaign. Shortly after the Obamas moved to the White House, they were joined by their true friend, Bo, who was with family during their stay in the House from 2009 to 2017.

The former first lady Michelle Obama took to her Twitter this Saturday to announce Bo's unfortunate death. Michelle wrote, "This afternoon was a difficult one for our family. We said goodbye to our best friend —our dog, Bo — after a battle with cancer."
Barack also penned an emotional note in memory of Bo. "Today our family lost a true friend and loyal companion, Bo "tolerated all the fuss that came with being in the White House, had a big bark but no bite, loved to jump in the pool in the summer, was unflappable with children, lived for scraps around the dinner table, and had great hair." wrote the former president.
