Barack Obama is in mourning after an important and much-loved member of his family passed away. The former president of the United States of America announced on Saturday night on his personal social network that Bo, one of his family’s dogs, from the Portuguese water breed, died at the age of 12.
Barack Obama is going through difficult times, after the dog Bo, a quadruped who was with the former presidential family for 10 years, died at the age of 12. The sad announcement was made by the former head of state on Twitter last night.
“Today our family has lost a true friend and a loyal companion. For more than a decade, Bo has been a constant and gentle presence in our lives – happy to see us in our good days, in our worst days, but also in the rest of our days. We will miss him very much “, the former president wrote on the internet.
Bo was suffering from cancer and was very old
And Michelle Obama, the former first lady of the United States, sent a message, saying, among other things, that Bo was suffering from cancer. However, Barack Obama’s wife had the power to ask animal lovers and owners to give the non-speakers around them a hug and comfort in Bo’s memory.
“This afternoon has been a difficult one for our family. We said goodbye to our best friend – Bo – after a battle with cancer. We are grateful for the love you have shown us over the years. Please hug your furry family members a little closer tonight – and give them a tummy tuck from us, ”Michelle Obama wrote on the same social network.
Bo arrived at the White House in 2009, shortly after Barack Obama became president of the United States. A few years later, Sunny, a female of the same noble race, was brought to the presidential residence. Over time, Obama praised Bo’s rather quiet presence, saying of him that “he barked noisily but didn’t bite, he liked to jump in the pool in the summer, he was calm in the presence of children, he loved leftovers from dinner, and he had a beautiful coat ”.
