The first lady has been spotted carrying the bag a few times this month. Maybe it’s a way to keep the animals close to her heart when she has to travel for work.
Jill Biden recently offered the Obama family words of consolation following the passing of their canine, Bo, who lived at the White House during Barack Obama’s years in office. “Bo brought smiles to us all,” she wrote on May 8 after the Obamas confirmed the dog had passed following a battle with cancer.
“Today our family lost a true friend and loyal companion,” Obama wrote on Twitter. “For more than a decade, Bo was a constant, gentle presence in our lives—happy to see us on our good days, our bad days, and everyday in between. He tolerated all the fuss that came with being in the White House, had a big bark but no bite, loved to jump in the pool in the summer, was unflappable with children, lived for scraps around the dinner table, and had great hair.”
Hold your pets close, friends. And if you have the extra cash, go ahead and get them painted on your stuff. It’s actually super cute, now that I think about it. Anyone have $2,000 I can borrow?
