First lady jokes energetic new puppy is 'crazy'

WASHINGTON (AP) — The first lady's take on the new White House puppy? He's "crazy."

Michelle Obama says "Bo" the Portuguese water dog loves to bark and play — expected for a puppy — and also likes to chew on people's feet.

Mrs. Obama says she spends lots of time walking and training Bo, the energetic six-month-old pup who arrived at the White House last week as a gift to the Obama daughters.

Mrs. Obama gave her update on Bo during a White House program Thursday marking the annual Take Your Child to Work Day.

Dozens of executive branch employees brought their children and grandchildren to participate, including Vice President Joe Biden, and the kids got a question-and-answer session with the first lady.
