Bo Obama the White House dog cost $1,600

275x250.jpgThe Obama's Portuguese water dog Bo cost $1,600, it has been revealed.

But Bo - who was picked over a rescue dog - was not paid for by the Obama family and was a gift from the late Ted Kennedy and his wife, Vicki.

His price has only come to light now after it appeared on official annual financial disclosure forms, which were released yesterday.

The forms detail all personal financial interests of the President, from income from his books to his college savings plans for daughters Sasha and Malia.

Other notable income listed includes his Nobel peace prize medal, the value of which was listed as "not readily ascertainable" -- which is one way of putting it.
In total Barack Obama is said to have $2.3m to $7.7m in assets including US treasury notes and bills and a pension from his service in the Illinois state legislature.
