It's a Girl! Meet Sunny, the Obamas' New Puppy


The Obama family welcomed another addition to the family today! A PUPPY!

Little girl Sunny is also a Portuguese Water Dog like her big brother Bo.  She was born June 2012 in Michigan and she is a sweet, affectionate and energetic little pup — a great fit with the family!

Just see for yourself how sweet she is:

FUN FACT: Chrissy, the lovely Portuguese Water Dog model photographed for our Dog Breed Selector, was litter mates with Bo Obama!  They bunked up in Mama's womb at the same time — they are litter-ally brother and sister.
