South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, a recent visitor to the White House, has been the center of rumors involving the disappearance of Bo Diddley, the Portuguese water dog that President Obama gave to his daughters, fulfilling a promise to them of having a dog of their own.
After a six month search for a non-allergenic canine, daughters Malia and Sasha finally got their wish, the rambunctious black and white pup who they named "Bo."
Following the visit of the Korean President, no one has seen Bo. Because it is well known that Koreans have an appetite for dog meat, it didn't take long for White House staff members to link the missing dog with the visit of President Lee. Attempts to interdict the plane carrying the alleged dog-napping Korean president were aborted for fear of creating an international incident with a country that America considers an important friend.
For now, at least, Malia and Sasha will not have to worry about whose turn it is to walk the dog. Small solace for the grieving daughters of our president.
