Ironically, while First Lady Michelle Obama tours the country spreading her message of healthy eating, one member of the family isn’t following her lead, and has put on an unhealthy amount of weight.

Bo Obama, a Portuguese Water Dog and White House resident, is on a diet. Like over half of the dogs and cats in the United States, the First Dog is overweight.

At the first ever “Kid’s State Dinner,” a group of children selected from Michelle Obama’s healthy recipe competition were invited to the White House. According to a U.S. News and World Report article, President Obama told the group of junior chefs in the East Room, “I only have one request for you, and that is try not to drop any scraps on the floor. Because Bo… Bo is on a diet right now and he will eat anything that he sees, especially some of the tasty meals that you guys have prepared.”

Do you think the president has been slipping Bo snacks under his famous desk in the Oval Office?
