Bo, the Portuguese Water Dog who moved in with the Obama family in 2009, has enjoyed the prestige of being a lone “First Dog,” and we’ve featured him on the Dogs blog twice (here and here). But now, Bo has a new playmate (and, perhaps, rival for the world’s attention). According to the White House blog, a new puppy named Sunny moved in yesterday:
Sunny was born in Michigan in June 2012, and arrived at the White House today. Just like Bo, she’s 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.
