(WJW) — Former President Barack Obama announced today the death of their family dog, Bo.

In a Tweet, Obama says the Portuguese water dog was a constant, gentle presence in their lives.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama says goodbye to their “best friend” in a Tweet after a battle with cancer.

She says they promised their daughters, Malia and Sasha, during the 2008 campaign they would get a puppy after the election to be their companion, not knowing how much he would mean to them all.
