Bo's Visit: Our Plan Commences

Coming Soon to Our Neighborhood? We'll See!
Now that the cat is out of the bag we're ready to start sharing our plans for Bo Obama's planned visit. In case you've missed any of the lead up, we've been tasked with preparing a special event at our home for Bo Obama, the Furst Dog. Home Goods is providing all the necessary accouterments to make a cozy spot for Bo, to make sure we have everything we need to make his visit comfortable, safe and fun.

Needless to say Tanner and Oliver are busting at their seams. Here's the general flow of the visit. Be sure to follow along so you don't miss any of the excitement or prizes. With all the Secret Service around, we're pretty sure we'll be attracting some puparazzi!
Tanner on Duty

Bo's Arrival will be top secret, of course. I can't tell you when or where he'll arrive. To be honest, I don't even know myself. We simply have to be ready at any moment to receive our celebrity guest. Sigh. I'm so not into surprise visits, but who's to argue with the Secret Service! We're guessing he'll arrive by Air Force One, after which he'll be brought here by special transport in an unidentifiable vehicle. No clues on that.

Our plan is to meet him at the back of the house (very stealthy, right?) where Tanner can escort him safely to the back yard for some welcome relief after a long plane ride. Tanner doesn't understand the whole Secret Service thing, so he's pretty sure he's in charge of Bo's safety. I'm sure Oliver will mark the spot to let all the neighborhood dogs in on the news, while keeping the humans out of the loop entirely. The dogs will quickly learn about Bo's safe arrival before any of you, as dogs always do scent things out well.
Another Home Goods Find!

Our meet and greet plan with the Furst Dog: Most certainly Bo is accustomed to staying clean, so we've stocked up on paw wipes and a new doormat, all located at our handy, local Home Goods store, to make sure Bo is satisfactorily tidied up before entering his private rest area.

Since Bo is a party-colored Portugese Water Dog, we've acquired suitably-colored bedding from Home Goods to assure a good night's rest in fashionable style.

Tanner and Oliver have insisted on having a 'sleepover' with Bo, so, of course, we had to get the boys matching beds in a color that works with our decor. Goodness knows, we couldn't be just tossing our old beds into Bo's area. What would he think!!! Of equal importance, what do you think?:

Good Memories in the Making
Just to make sure Bo feels at home, we've hung an adorable photo board over his bed, featuring pictures of the Furst Dog himself as well as Oliver and Tanner. I picked this up at Home Goods;  a little tip--they even had a kitty version :) And stay with us as we unveil the rest of the plan; Oliver hopes to help Bo's furry family grow and Tanner has big plans for bringing out the water dog in our new friend :)

There's a lot more to share, so watch the blog closely to see how we spend our time with Bo, as well as what we'll be doing with the excess loot. Can you guess?

More soon,

How exciting is this for you and your 'boys". It sounds like Bo will be properly hosted and taken care of during his visit with your family. Nothing too good for the First Dog, right!!

ChazzTheDog and I wish you much success and lots of fun with it all.
