Obama family welcomes a new puppy into the White House

The Obamas have a new member of the first family.

Sunny, a Portugueses water dog, arrived Monday at the White House from Michigan. She was born in June 2012 and is the sister of the original Obama family pet Bo. According to The Washington Post, the Obama also made a donation to the Washington Humane Society.

The White House wrote on its website that the family chose another Portugueses water dog because the dogs work well with the family's allergies. Also, Michelle Obama had hinted before that Bo needed company.

From WhiteHouse.gov:

In October, the First Lady told reporters that she hosted a “doggie play date” because “Bo doesn't have enough dog interaction.” So now, in addition to helping with those official duties, Bo takes on the important role of big brother!
