First Lady Michelle Obama hosts Puppy Bowl “training camp”
Channel Guide Magazine ^ | January 29, 2014 | Jeff Pfeiffer

Ahead of Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl X this Sunday, hype for the annual special was amped up recently when First Lady Michelle Obama and the First Family’s dogs Bo and Sunny worked to “train” some of the pups for the big game.

Joined by 12 first- and second-grade students from Harriet Tubman Elementary School, Michelle Obama, Bo and Sunny put the puppies through their paces to make sure they were ready to compete in Puppy Bowl X, and to be healthy for life. Animal Planet says it was inspired by the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative to overcome childhood obesity, and wanted the Puppy Bowl pooches to be ambassadors for canine fitness and fun for the whole family.

“It was so much fun to see the Puppy Bowl X Team work out at the White House,” said Michelle Obama in a release. “This year’s pups showed us that getting active and lapping up plenty of water are important ways to keep our bodies healthy and energized. And as our family has seen with Bo and Sunny, going outside to walk and play with your pet is a perfect way to get moving and have some fun every day.”

The 13 puppies taking part in this training camp were from various shelters and rescue groups. Bo and Sunny lined the dogs up for practice on the White House South Lawn to run through tire and tackle drills, hone their ball and chew-toy skills, play fetch with the kids and take water breaks. This was all followed by a nap in the grass.

Puppy Bowl X premieres Feb. 2 at 3pm ET/PT on Animal Planet.

Possible doggie ping, offset by the barf factor.

I hope Barry the Boob isn't involved in this endeavor.

We wouldn't want any puppies to be eaten during this production.

Better keep those puppies away from Barry, they’re like veal to him.

So BO and MO are up at dawn, out walking the dogs in sub-zero temps?

Training puppies?

Probably using the portions of the Constitution that Barry hasn’t already used.

Nope it s simpler than that.
Check around on some of the Bigfoot websites and you’ll find out that Sasquatch will eat dogs. This is part of her organic garden!

Well, so much for the puppy bowl, it was good while it lasted.

Is there anything these creeps can’t destroy?

Are kids getting fatter since Michelle started this nonsense?

Did you see Bohner stand up and give her an ovation when Obama complimented her?

He really seemed impressed with her.

I cannot imagine how BO has been able to tolerate these constant humiliations for so long.

I sure am learning that white presidents better show diversity in their chosen photo ops, but black presidents don’t have to. Diversity for thee.

Training camp or poop camp?

Moochelle looks very stupid. Is she on drugs?
There are only nine children in the photo. What happened to the other 3?
Who carried that ONE water bowl for the dogs?
Is that a manual teleprompter in the background?
Moochelle looks extremely crazy.

Sorry to have to say this, but look between Michelle’s legs - I think that’s the bottom half of a kid, making it 9 (or at least 8 1/2).

“Is there any part of our lives that they won’t stick their noses into?”

Just (unsuccessfully) pretending to be relevant to anyone outside of the ghetto; this cow is on kids’ shows and such doing the same. I’m glad she is so grotesque in appearance; most children will not view her as someone they can relate to. Even libs admit nobody (on either side of the aisle) even listens to Obama anymore when he speaks; they all know it is meaningless blather fabricated to invent a “legacy”. When he leaves office and the economy is in much worse shape than when he was ordained our king, we will hear how he fixed things and gave healthcare to all, while his wife got America in shape. A completely bogus legacy...

I used to enjoy the Puppy Bowl, but I guess I’m done with it now. At least she isn’t telling me what I should feed my own dog... yet.

Initially, with the ‘cutesy’ writeup, I thought this was satire .... sadly, not so.

she's just there to pick-out "the best/most succulent" of the puppies presented

Great. Even the Puppy Bowl has to be soiled by the ever-present fat-bottomed beast.
