ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — He may be leader of the free world, but when he takes his dog for a walk, President Barack Obama says he bends down to do the nasty work of cleaning up like anyone else.

Answering questions Friday from youngsters at an elementary school, Obama described going for nighttime walks with first dog Bo on the White House South Lawn. He says that’s fun. But, Obama says, “Sometimes I have to scoop up his poop, because I don’t want to just leave it in the lawn!”

The response from the kids: “Eeew!”

Obama admonished them: “If you guys have a dog, you’ve got to walk your dog, too — and clean up after him.”
