Michelle Obama last week revealed to Barbara Walters that family dog Bo is the First Couples son. Here are her exact words: Bo is my baby, hes our son, she told Walters during an interview.

Yes, it seems the president of the most powerful nation in the world has a dog for a son. If we can verify this, it is huge news for canines everywhere! Lets take a pictorial look at the evidence.

And just look at that playground they're heading toward. That's no dog house!

Pictures do not lie. Bo is, indeed, the presidents son. We dont know why it has taken this long for the truth to surface. But dogs will soon be reveling in Dogsters discovery.

If this were a monarchy, Bo would be heir to the throne. A Portuguese water dog could become king.

But even simply being the offspring of the president will have huge implications for dogs. Bo could bridge the final gap between humans and canines. Kennels and kibble? No more! Theyll be replaced by rooms with beds, and beef dinners. Bows in the hair? Please! If the presidents son wont wear em, then neither should other dogs.

Dogster dogs: We want to hear from you. Now that the First Dog has attained human status, what would you like to change in your world? A ban on baths in front of the neighbors? No being left home alone for hours on end?

Well collect your responses and send them to the White House further consideration.
