The White House announced that the president and his family just got a new dog. Her name? Sunny. She's a Portuguese Water Dog, like their other dog, Bo.

"Today the Obamas welcomed the newest member of their family – a little girl (puppy) named Sunny!" the White House announced.

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. ...

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!

Here's a video, released by the White House:
