Prez-Tip: Spare the innocents. With Sasha and Malia looking on, a cheerful Obama pardons a very grateful turkey named Liberty the day before last Thanksgiving, as every U.S. president has done since 1989.
Prez-Tip: Be friendly – but don’t get too close. Bo and the president introduced themselves to a standard poodle named Cinnamon during their PetSmart outing last year. “Okay, Bo, don’t get too personal here,” Obama joked.
