Historical Facts


“Only the President lands on the South Lawn.”

Bo says, “Only the president lands on the South Lawn,” referring to an honored tradition reserved for the president; however, these are true words spoken from former President George H. W. Bush. Before George H. W. Bush was president, he served as vice president to Ronald Reagan. While President Reagan was in office, he was shot and rushed to surgery. His advisers wanted Vice President George H. W. Bush to land on the South Lawn as a public symbol of leadership. However, Vice President George H. W. Bush refused and responded, “Only the president lands on the South Lawn,” showing an immense amount of respect not only to President Ronald Reagan, but the office of the President of the United States.

“A Marine will open and close the door for you.”

Bo instructs other dogs not to scratch the door, as a Marine stands guard to open and close the door for guests. Only four Marines in the Marine Corp are selected for this post! They work individual 30 minutes shifts the entire time the president is working in West Wing and are relieved of duty when the president’s work is complete. How can they be ready to open the door when the president, vice president, or any guest leaves the White House? Do Marines have eyes in the back of their head?? Great question! Inside the White House, a secret service agent presses a buzzer once for a guest leaves and three times when the president leaves. The marine who is on guard outdoors hears this buzz and immediately turns to open the door for the person exiting the West Wing.

“Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office.”

Pictured at a talk show, Bo sends “warm wishes to the Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office, our friendly ally across the pond.” (“Across the pond” is a saying that means across the ocean.) What a long nickname for a cat! Bo is talking about sending friendly greetings to the official resident cat of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. The cat’s real name is Larry, who lives at 10 Downing Street (head quarters of the executive office of the British Government). Larry is to the United Kingdom, what Bo is to the United States of America.

British Prime Minister David Cameron and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge

Illustrated in the book is a picture of British Prime Minister David Cameron and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge in the White House. In the illustration, Prime Minister David Cameron is holding a bone wrapped with the United Kingdom flag. Bo Obama actually was given a bone shaped chew toy, decorated with the England flag, as a gift from Prime Minister Cameron when he visited the White House.

Former First Dogs

Bo is seen walking through a hallway of former First Dogs. On the wall, you can see former President Bush’s dogs, Mr. Barney Bush and Miss Beazley Bush. “43” is written above their portraits because they were the dogs of the 43rd President of the United States. Also in view is former 42nd President Bill Clinton’s dog, Mr. Buddy Clinton.

Five Living Presidents

In the White House dining room, you see five men illustrated around the table. What you might not know is these men are our nation’s five living presidents! Pictured from left to right are: Jimmy Carter (39th president), George H. W. Bush (41st president), Bill Clinton (42nd president), George W. Bush (43rd president), and Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States. Also, did you notice George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush have nearly identical names? That’s because they are father and son! George H. W. Bush, the 41st president, is the father of George W. Bush, the 43rd president. The only other father/son duo to be elected president is John Adams, the 2nd president and John Quincy Adams, the 6th president.

Bo Passing the Bone

On the last page, Bo “passes the bone” to his canine successor, by leaving a bone for him or her to find in the White House when he or she takes office. Bo’s act is an allusion to the traditional departure letter written by the outgoing president to the incoming president, left on the Oval Office desk.

11 months. Loves music (5 little ducks and wheels on the bus), wagon rides, being held, tickles, standing up, and reading books. She is a sympathy crier (always has been) and cries anytime a baby cries or Mommy coughs or sneezes. She’s the definition of a sweetheart and I pray she never loses her sensitivity and compassion!
My sweet Ver-Bear 🐻❤️
Cleaning out my photos and came across this. 2 days old, taken the day we came home from the hospital. I can’t believe she used to be this little! 😭My Mom made her beautiful blanket. ❤️
10 months! Loves music, singing, swim class, babies, cuddling, back scratches and getting her hair brushed. All of a sudden wants to eat cords, outlets and pretty much anything dangerous. Every night we pray together & ask Jesus to give  her the fruits of the Spirit. So very grateful for my joyful, loving and peaceful baby girl!
Vera was 9 Months yesterday! Loves sucking her thumb, her cow Bessie, mirrors, singing & cuddling. Squeals and bounces when she watches Word Party. Does not love being away from Mommy or when Mommy isn’t holding her. Sweetest girl in the world!
It was a fun Cinco De Mayo celebrating @kaylenirvine & @chrisirvine89 🌮🎀💙Two of my dearest friends are pregnant & I can’t wait to meet these precious babies! Love these girls ❤️ #tacobouttwins
Yesterday, our Grandpa, who we love more than words can say, was called home to be with the Lord. I am so grateful the Lord allowed my Dad, sisters and I to be together to hold his hand, kiss him and tell him how much we love him. His life was marked by service and honor, to his country and his family. Words are simply inadequate to express a lifetime of love and memories. Please pray for the Lord’s comfort and peace over my Grandma, my Dad and Aunts this week as we lay him to rest and honor his life. I miss him deeply and will love and cherish my Grandpa forever.
I have waited two years for this moment!! The room where it happens!
Happy birthday @blakeandrew9! I couldn’t ask for a more loyal, devoted husband and Daddy to Vera. He gets up early to study to the Word and lives his life for the gospel. He’s easy to celebrate for so many reasons. So grateful to spend my life with you. I love you!
