The White House has announced on it’s website the entry of a new resident on Monday.
The resident is Sunny, a 1-year-old Portuguese Water Dog, moved into the Washington residence of President Barack Obama and his family, joining Bo, a male dog of the same breed that was given to the first family in 2009 as a gift from Senator Edward Kennedy.
“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 report said.
The announcement featured pictures of the two dogs relaxing in the residence’s South Lawn.
“We suspect Sunny will follow in Bo’s footsteps and keep the president company in the Oval Office, go for walks with the first family after their 6:30 family dinner and even jump up on the first lady’s lap from time to time!” the White House said in its announcement.
