If a California teen can ask a Sports Illustrated model to prom through YouTube, then an Oregon goldendoodle can certainly request a date from the presidential pooch in the same way.

In a video produced by the Oregon Humane Society, a lovesick goldendoodle named Ramona desperately seeks to bring Bo Obama to the organization’s upcoming fundraiser.

"Oh, no. I don't have a date for Doggie Dash!” the pup exclaims in a huge thought bubble over her head.

After trying to reach the first dog via Twitter, Facebook and phone, Ramona finally sends him a note, seeking him to lead the May 11 event as Grand Dog Marshal.

The White House has been mum on an answer, but the Oregon Humane Society set up a website encouraging others to help Ramona’s appeal. The site provides links to Ramona’s letter and a Change.org petition seeking signatures to send Bo on the cross-country trip.

The video proposal seems to be a popular tactic lately. Earlier this week, swimsuit model Kate Upton surprised a Los Angeles high school senior when she tentatively accepted his request to be his prom date. He made the pitch to her in a YouTube video.

Other celebrities who fell for the ploy include Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, who accepted dates to the Marine Corps after being asked in separate YouTube videos.
