Question: What is the Name of President Obama's Dog?
Answer: The Obamas named their dog Bo. Some say the name choice may have been after singer Bo Diddley or perhaps it was a play on the President's initials.

On Easter Sunday 2009, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters, Malia and Sasha, received a puppy from Senator Ted Kennedy and his wife Vicki.

The President promised his girls in his Election Night speech that they would get a puppy when they moved to the White House.
