Of Presidential Pets & Broken Promises

Why did I have a feeling someone would make a big hue-and-cry about this!
Is Bo a rescued dog or not? Did President Obama keep or break a campaign promise in picking the purebred as the family's new pet?
Focus on "campaign promises" that really matter - let this one slide, guys!!

P.S. Newsweek has an interesting gallery of presidential pets over the years, including incredulous pictures of a horse and many sheep on the White House lawns + a goat pulling a cart with the President's grand-kids + the story of a cow that grazed on the White House lawn!

Also read about Lincoln's unfortunate pet, Fido, who was "assassinated" a year before Lincoln's death - killed by a drunken man who Fido had started licking!
"If you want a friend in this town, get a dog." - Harry Truman
