Presidential puppy loses battle with cancer, Obama: We said goodbye to our best

Barack and Michelle Obama have announced the death of the family puppy.

Bo lost the battle with cancer at the age of 12 and was the family puppy who also became known to the public during the Obama presidency.

"This afternoon was difficult for our family. We said goodbye to our best friend, Bo, after a battle with cancer. In the 2008 election campaign we promised the girls that we would get a puppy after the election. At the time, Bo would be accompanying the girls. "We had no idea it would matter so much to us," Michelle wrote in a Twitter post.
