Life Before Bo? Meet the Dogs Who Could've Been First Pup!

While we'll probably never know the answers to those questions, husband-wife team Spencer Starr and Sharon Montrose addressed them in their fun, fictional new book Almost First Dog: The Secret Rejected Portuguese Water Dog Applications. The tome pairs pics of adorable Portuguese water dogs with their resumes stating why they'd make a great First Dog. Some qualifications? "I always remember to 'do my business' outside." "I can jump super high." "I can keep a secret." "I love to play!"
Though none of the dogs were seriously considered as the Obama family pet, the pictures are adorable and their resumes are fun to read. And who knows – maybe one of these pups will end up as a playmate for Bo!
