Did the White House's pampered pooch, Bo Obama, really get his own flight to the vacation spot of the rich and famous?
UNCONFIRMED: Bo isn't talking
According to The Telegraph, first dog Bo got very special treatment during transit to the Obamas' Martha's Vineyard 5,000-square-foot vacation home. The paper claims that the Portuguese water dog arrived separate from the Obamas on "one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane."
The first family is taking an eight-day vacation at the popular summer spot. And according to the paper that means more than 70 hotel rooms for Secret Service agents, and a mesh bag full of basketballs, which was also photographed on the tarmac next to a shot of Bo on a leash.
The problem with confirming this particular rumor: dogs don't talk. And so far the Telegraph is basing all of its reporting on a single picture. White House spokesperson Jay Carney did sort of acknowledge the extravagant vacation haul. "Obviously, when you're president of the United States, you carry a little baggage when you travel," he said during a press conference.
