A Bo dog you can cuddle
Thanks to Bo, you can’t deny the popularity of the Portuguese Water Dog, including the plush toy version.
Here’s the newest stuffed animal version of America’s first dog, released a few days ago by Build-A-Bear Workshop: the All-American Portuguese Water Dog, which bears a striking resemblance to Bo and can be purchased with a star spangled leash and collar, a Dog Constitution proclaiming “We the Dog” and a flag bandana.
The toy is the latest addition to the company’s Bearemy’s Kennel Pals collection and can be purchased online ($22, with accessories extra). $1 from each purchase will go to the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation to support domestic pets such as animal shelters, stray pet rescues and educational programs.
That makes it a worthy purchase for a worthy cause. We think the real Bo would approve.
