You know how grotesque the US right has become when even British Daily Mail readers condemn their comments as vile and unacceptable.

The Daily Mail. The paper that supported, to begin with, the rise of Hitler. They think you're scum. Says a lot.

I adore Bo. He looks so cuddly. The whole family loves the dog, it's obvious. And that's how it should be.

I liked this. Sometimes I've wondered what they were doing with that dog. But it looks like it's the classic story. The kids think it's their dog, but it's really mom's.

D'awww... I just love Bo.

Spending Christmas at my parents' house with their golden retrievers, one of which is just a 3 month old widdlefuzzywuzzypuppykins and seriously freaking smart (it took like a day for him to learn to go to the door to go potty, and one try to learn "sit". Their last two retrievers were kinda dumbasses.) My poor pups are spending the holiday boarded at the vet. :-( It would have cost more to fly them than our human plane tickets cost.

You can see he's used to doing that at home, signal or no signal, and she allows him to. No way if that dog is punished for doing that at home he does it here. Doesn't she take a tour of the hospital? Maybe she brings along Bo because she knows that it'll make the kids feel good. He's pretty popular and damn cute. Probably why all the First Ladies brought their dogs, so the kids could have a little fun with them.

I like the First Lady and think it was really cute. Shows she's human, when her dog sometimes won't listen to her and she tolerates the behavior.

Mock26: I am waiting for the day when we have a President with a cat. I am going to go all out and find/make the most incredible ornament I can find, and then fill it with cat nip. And send it to them as a christmas gift. :-D

75 lb black lab mix. Dogs like to be at the center of attention whether it's a keg stand or broken toe. The love for dogs is primal, subconscious. You've got to laugh.

planes: Salt Lick Steady: She's awesome. The dog's a little froo froo, but I love her.

I sure hope you love her ... You'rer paying for her $4 million bi-monthly vacation. Where was the $100K a year official dog handler? This was no accident, but obviously a staged photo-op, otherwise that handler would be in trouble.

I'm really glad this thread isn't about Laura Bush. It could've gotten ugly.

AverageAmericanGuy: That kid's tripping balls.

Dude.  She's at a children's hospital.  He doesn't look ok because he's probably sick with something...or maybe its the drugs they gave him to help with why he's there in the first place.

And because it does look like he's tripping balls.

Right. The dog.

Not the kid high on LSD sitting to her right? That kid's tripping balls.
