New Photo: the First Lady and the First Dog

A new special look at the First Lady and the First Dog.

As the Director of Correspondence for the First Lady, it’s my honor – and pleasure – to read through the letters the First Lady receives every day from across the country. People write in about all kinds of issues, ranging from the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative to help kids get active and stay healthy to her work lifting up military families through Joining Forces. But we also get quite a few letters addressed to, or about, the youngest member of the Obama family – Bo! That’s why Mrs. Obama recently took a photo with Bo in the White House kitchen garden, so that kids writing in about the garden or about Bo could get a letter back with a photo of the First Dog. Letters from children are always such a joy and inspiration, that’s why Mrs. Obama wanted to give them something more tangible in return. We hope kids of all ages enjoy this special look at the First Lady and the First Dog as much as I do!
