AP ~ First grandmother Marian Robinson didn’t have a dog growing up. Neither did her daughter, first lady Michelle Obama.

But since Bo moved into the White House and become part of the first family, Robinson says she loves him “almost like a person.”

Mrs. Robinson told about 100 pre-kindergarten through third-grade pupils Thursday that Bo is “precious.” She answered the kids’ questions after reading to them during an Education Department-sponsored story hour.

Mrs. Robinson lives at the White House with her son-in-law, President Barack Obama, her daughter and granddaughters Malia and Sasha, and nearly 2-year-old Bo.

She turns 73 on July 29.
