Proof for those who say everything in Washington has a price: Bo Obama, the curly-haired pooch owned by the Obama family, is worth exactly $1600.

That’s from President Barack Obama’s 2009 financial disclosure form, released Monday. The Portuguese Water Dog was a gift from the late Sen. Ted Kennedy and family, and as such, Obama had to disclose the pup’s value on his required list of gifts and earnings. Bo joined the White House in on April 14, 2009, as a present for Obama’s daughters, Sasha and Malia.

In 2009, Obama disclosed yearly income between $4.1 million and $12.1 million. (via Yahoo News)
