Obama barks. Really. Prez and pooch perform on cue

By jim Published: June 3, 2009

WASHINGTON (AP) — Barack Obama barks. Really.

Obama and his wife, Michelle, showed off Bo, the family's puppy, to NBC News anchor Brian Williams for his day-at-the-White House special before Obama left on his Mideast trip.

Bo performed on cue, offering his paw when the president reached out for a shake.

The Obamas turned in their own performances.

The first lady held forth in a sugary puppy voice, saying, "I walk myself, too."

The president channeled his pooch.

"Oh, there you go," Obama told the dog, holding out his hand for a shake. "I'm talking about shaking. Yes, yes, grrrrr."
