ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

1. Bo is a Portuguese Water Dog, introduced by Ty after his namesake (the real Bo) arrived at the White House April 14, 2009. The real Bo was a gift from Senator Ted Kennedy to the Obama family. Bo was named by Malia and Sasha Obama. The popular media take is that Bo is the namesake of deceased singer Bo Diddley, but it seems more likely Bo's name is derived from the initials of Barack Obama.

2. There are four versions of Bo. The first three versions were available only in select stores, in very limited quantities. There are minor but noticeable differences between the versions like fur length, style of nose, height, tail shape, etc.

The 2.0 version of Bo with the "online code" tag sold out on January 18, 2012.
