Yesterday, we reported that the Obama family was in mourning after the death of their dog Bo. Now, First Lady Jill Biden is speaking out to offer her condolences to Michelle Obama and her family during this difficult time.
“My heart is with you @MichelleObama, @BarackObama, Sasha, Malia, and Sunny. Bo brought smiles to us all,” Jill wrote on social media in response to Michelle’s post announcing Bo’s death.

This came after Michelle revealed that Bo had died, saying that her family had “said goodbye to our best friend.”
“On the campaign trail in 2008, we promised our daughters that we would get a puppy after the election. At the time, Bo was supposed to be a companion for the girls. We had no idea how much he would mean to all of us,” she wrote.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
“For more than a decade, Bo was a constant, comforting presence in our lives,” Michelle continued. “He was there when the girls came home from school, greeting them with a wag. He was there when Barack and I needed a break, sauntering into one of our offices like he owned the place, a ball clamped firmly in his teeth.”
“He was there when we flew on Air Force One, when tens of thousands flocked to the South Lawn for the Easter Egg Roll, and when the Pope came to visit,” she added. “And when our lives slowed down, he was there, too—helping us see the girls off to college and adjust to life as empty nesters.”
“This past year, with everyone back home during the pandemic, no one was happier than Bo,” Michelle stated. “All his people were under one roof again—just like the day we got him. I will always be grateful that Bo and the girls got to spend so much time together at the end.”
“As a family, we will miss Bo dearly. But we are thankful that he lived such a joyful life full of snuggles, games of fetch, and evenings spent lying on the couch,” she concluded. “We also know we weren’t the only ones who cared for Bo, and are grateful for all the love you showed him over the years. Please hug the furry members of your family a little closer tonight—and give them a belly rub from us.”
