Washington, DC/ Washington Post/Pets/Leisure Section - Bo, the charasmatic Portugese Water Dog has screwed up: BIG TIME!
The photogenic dog, bred for water retrieval purposes has been cast out from the White House after repeated toe grabbing retrieval efforts from the Islamic Foot Baths installed by President Barack Hussein Obama to observe Ramadan, the National Islamic Holidays.
During this, the most holy days of Islam, when people fast in order to learn patience, modesty and spirituality, the holiday has turned into a nightmare for the Obama First Family.
The 17 foot washing stations installed during the recent remodeling of the White House, at a cost of $25,000 per, became the personal playground for the playful pup, who couldn't resist plunging in to retrieve smelly toes, and yes, even pee in the doggie friendly ponds.
The baths, used up to 5 times a day during the spiritual holiday, before each prayer call, became a constant chore for the Secret Service Agents delegated to insure that the bath water was always at the right temperature, and purer than the bottled imported water favoured by the First Lady.
Bo, the lovable retriever, who remained largely ignored after the first few photo ops in the rose garden, was forced to entertain himself due to lack of attention. Imagine his delight, when during investigation for discarded chicken and rib bones under the Obama Dining Table, he was able to find 17 private pools for his canine delight!
Despite the fact that Portuguese Water Dogs don't shed, don't smell, and don't cause allergies, under newly adopted White House Sharia Law, the Prez issued a FATWA, and said he had to go.
Bo was dropped off in a cardboard box at a downtown Catholic Church, with a note which simply stated "Happy Easter from A Friend!"
Obama mother in law, Marian Robinson, is continuing with her exorcism of the pools, the dog kennel, and the former exterior 'bark park' sprinkling dried chicken blood, ground up wart hog tusk and monkey ball paste over the afflicted areas.
Bo, who is black, is said to be happy in his new home and doesn't feel that his 'dumping' was racially motivated.
