US President Barack Obama and his family have welcomed a new dog they named Sunny on Monday. According to the White House, Sunny, who will be a little sister to Bo, was born in Michigan in 2012.
The White House blog reads: 'Just like Bo, she's is a Portuguese Water Dog, which works great for the Obamas because of allergies in their family. Sunny is the perfect little sister for Bo – full of energy and very affectionate – and the First Family picked her name because it fit her cheerful personality.'
The White House also said Bo wasn’t getting enough dog interaction. One reason that the first family might have considered for getting another dog.
The White House added: '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 the Holiday decorations at the White House, to greeting guests at the White House on tours and during the Easter Egg Roll, but in October, the First Lady told reporters that she hosted a “doggie play date” because “Bo doesn't have enough dog interaction.”’
Both the president and the first lady took to Twitter to welcome the newest member of their family.
