When Gretchen Wieners tried to coin the word “fetch,” we don’t think she meant it literally.
But nonetheless, nine years after the release of Mean Girls, her fans are still carrying the torch on her behalf – and that includes First Dog Bo.
“Bo, stop trying to make fetch happen,” quipped the official Twitter of the White House on Tuesday, sharing a photo of the Portuguese water dog sitting patiently with a tennis ball in his mouth.
While we understand playing fetch in the Oval Office might not be the best idea, we hope Bo got to have his way on the South Lawn!
