Members of the press are at the White House for the official unveiling of first dog, Bo, and pictures are starting to trickle out online. These come courtesy of the Twitpic feed of Air America reporter and Washington Post Live Q&A host Ana Marie Cox. Click on the images for the full size shots.

And some more pictures, from The Post's Bill O'Leary:

Now that Bo has arrived, the First Family is even more delightful than ever and greatly admired here and abroad. But the right-wing-nuts just cannot stand it. Gee, I am so sorry that your guy, our past president, and I use that term loosely, left such a bad taste in the mouths of 70% of the American public. . . wait a minute, no, I am not sorry at all. The sight of that beautiful family with their new dog will endear them even more. We won; you lost. Get over it.

While the article on four more ships being seized an 60 people held hostage is more than 2/3rd's down the page here on the Pravda web-site.

Amazing how things change from one day to the next. Yesterday Bo was sucking hind tet at a puppy mill and today he is the smartest and most attractive of all beings roaming the White House - No offense to Bo since he did not have much competition on either front. The Good Lord willing, Bo will be making policy decisions in the near future .......

This is news fit for the Front Page? Maybe page C-17 might be a better place, right under the Ziggy cartoon.
