The White House Made Their Dogs Into Robots, But It’s Not What You Think

Each year, the White House hosts a holiday tour with a variety of unique and festive displays. The highlight of this year's tour is robot versions of Bo and Sunny, the nation's First Dogs and the Obama family's treasured pets.

Now they're the big attraction in the 2014 holiday display (as far as we're concerned :) ).

That sounds neat, but we'll take robot dogs. Way cooler.

Better luck this year, White House! And more dogs, please. Even if they are robots. [caption id="attachment_29183" align="aligncenter" width="600"]robodog8 Image via People[/caption]
