Bemidji family learns their pet dog is a half-sister of Bo

Email

BEMIDJI - A Bemidji family has a White House canine connection.

Ruby, a 2-year-old Portuguese water dog owned by Julie Quanrud and her husband, Ric Meixell, is the half-sister of President Barack Obama's new family dog, Bo.

"I was suspicious because the muzzle is the same," Quanrud said, adding that she became even more suspicious when she saw the Obama family's dog had the exact same white markings as Julius, a full sibling of Ruby's.
