Did the First Dog Leave a Number Two on Air Force One?
Wall Street Journal ^ | 10/7/09 | Elizabeth Williamson

Posted on 10/08/2009 8:01:20 AM PDT by RogerWilko

The mystery begins in a Pittsburgh bar where several high-flying airline types met last month. The group swapped stories over drinks when three people present let loose with a good tale.

Bo, the presidential puppy, recently left a present on the presidential jet, they said, and a flight attendant had nearly stepped in it. Associated Press Bo, the Obama family dog, walks away from Air Force One Aug. 30, 2009, at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., upon the Obamas’ arrival from a vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. “You can imagine the horror on board when they discovered what it had done,” a participant in the conversation said, referring to Bo. Reports of other puppy-like behavior support the story.

At least two reporters spotted Bo running loose aboard Air Force One this summer. News stories say he chews socks, magazines and the presidential sneakers. In an NBC television interview around the time of the alleged accident, President Barack Obama said Bo has chosen notable venues in the past. “We go out and we’re walking and I’m picking up poop, and in the background is the beautifully lit White House,” the president said. “It’s quite a moment.”

A White House press official was certain—the scoop on the poop was a crock. The press office checked with the Air Force One flight crew who said Bo had not desecrated the jet... (SNIP)

According to McConnell, he checked with two contacts in the 89th Airlift Wing. Both separately confirmed Bo’s youthful indiscretion, although neither of them would speak directly with Washington Wire. “Of course the dog accident on Air Force One happened,” McConnell contends. But the 89th won’t go public with it, he said, because it is strict Air Force policy not to discuss passengers’ activities. The White House stands by its denial.... (SNIP)

Well, it's only logical...we have a prez who thinks his stuff don't stink, he has a dog who doesn't even crap!

I imagine the dog has been warned that if he does, his owner will "Call him out!"

What can we expect from poor Bo? Look at the example he has of his master crapping all over this country and the Constitution and leaving it for everyone else to step in and clean up. The stink will be around long after he is ousted.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Why not just ‘fess up? Anybody who’s owned a dog knows that they cause problems at times, especially during the first year. Unless, of course, you see yourself as the One, whose perfection even extends to your pooch.

I think this says more about how normal Bo might be than what poor training he has had. I’ve got a ten month old Pug, he’s fully housebroken and has been for some time now, but he had an “accident” under the dining room table just this morning.

Why? Because I goofed and left his doggie door closed last night, so he could not get out of the house. If a guy has to go, a guy has to go, and I don’t think I’m a bad dog owner because of one pile of poop no matter where it was left. I’m pretty sure my Gus would gladly crap on Air Force One if left no other opportunity. After all, he can hardly excuse himself and step outside at 30,000 feet...

Dog just did what a dog does. I don't blame him. I blame Barry O. for not taking his dog for a walk before going on a trip.

And this turd was saying he wants his daughters to act responsibly if they get a dog?

I always walk my dog before they ever get in the car. That way you don't have an anxious dog, who instinctively knows he really should poop somewhere else.

I’m more interested in why Bo is left to run about on the WH lawn with no attendant to pick up the poop. City dog rules are that the one with the dog scoops the poop. IIs he left to roam about aimlessly unwatched?

It's an instinctive reaction on BO's part!

Remember how Bubba naturally caused canines to present a "Clinton Moustache?"

Seems reasonable the Big Wee Wee would also cause cause puppy to make a Bo-Bo Doo Doo.

We use euphemisms in our house when Buster (a Corgi mix) or Roscoe (black Lab) have an "accident". For the last year, they have been:

"Honey, I think one of the dogs did a Bernanke on the kitchen floor and then ate it."

"Not only that, but Roscoe has been dragging his Paulson around on the carpet, think he needs those glands squeezed again."

THAT happened the minute The One stepped aboard for the 1st time.
