    Though he can't speak, we bet Bo Obama would have a lot to say about the goings-on at the White House. The Portuguese water dog entered the Obamas' lives when Barack won the presidency, as a promise to his daughters Sasha and Malia — and the curly-haired fluff-ball has been a part of political (pet) history ever since.

A stalwart pal, Bo has been seen in motorcades and parades, on Air Force One, and at the Easter egg hunt. So on his 52nd birthday, we wish our Leo-in-chief (Michelle is a Capricorn, no wonder she keeps him level) a happy day by rounding up our favorite flicks of the first dog...and his BFF, the President. (Plus, we've got a bonus photo of Bo that is literally the best thing that may have ever happened.)
