There’s a new dog in the White House — Obama’s puppy, Sunny

SEATTLE — On Monday, the White House announced that the Obamas welcomed the newest member of their family – a little girl (puppy) who has been named Sunny.

Sunny was born in Michigan in June 2012. Like Bo, she’s a Portuguese Water Dog, which works great for the Obamas because of allergies in their family, a White House blog post said.

The new puppy is said to be a perfect little sister for Bo and the First Family picked her name because it fit her cheerful personality.

The White House said that in the past, Bo has been eager to help the First Family with their official duties, from visiting Walter Reed and the Children’s National Medical Center to inspecting holiday decorations at the White House and greeting guests. In October, the First Lady told reporters that she hosted a “doggie play date” because “Bo doesn’t have enough dog interaction.” From the looks of things, it seems that will all change for him.
