Bo: Famous presidential pooches

They are on Air Force 1. Bo is probably scared. Yes, it's a set-up photo; any President/Dog photo is set up. DO you think the presidents have photographers following them 24/7 to take "candid" pictures?
Does this look like a set-up picture? When I hold my dog's head, she pushes into me. Bo looks like he's pulling away, and the wall is keeping him from backing up even more.
Daryl. I have to agree with you. The dog is not leaning toward the president like mine would do. Since the story said he is kept in the basement and stays with a handler he probably is not that used to being around the president. Good observation.
@ Anonymous I believe it was Bill Clinton's dog they said was kept in the basement and stayed with a handler. (Though if this was true, why did he move to NY state with them?) Anyway, it was not President Obama's dog.
I saw Bo when I visited D.C. in June! I was so happy as it was my first time there (well, my first time in the US) and I couldn't see the president but then I saw Bo in the garden! ♥ :D
listed under "other presidential pooches" is "Pete", one of Theodore Roosevelt's dogs. He is INCORRECTLY listed as a pit bull. Pete was actually a Bull Terrier, which is quite different from a pit bull.
