The White House has announced that the Obamas have added a second dog to their family. As many know, Bo is the President’s “first pet” but now he’s got another playing partner. Her name is Sunny, and she’s a Portuguese Water Dog, the same breed as Bo. You might be wondering why the Obamas adopted the exact same breed again. The White House says it’s because of family allergies so now everyone’s happy!

Their latest addition, Sunny, was born a year ago in June in Michigan and arrived at the White House Monday. She’s expected to join Bo for evening walks and the occasional Oval Office consult with the president himself. The White House says the Obamas will donate in Sunny’s honor to the Washington Humane Society. The Obamas adopted their first White House dog in April 2009, fulfilling a campaign promise to daughters Sasha and Malia.
