Remember last week when the White House indulged Bo by tweeting an adorable picture of him along with a Mean Girls reference? Well, they may have been cosseting the First Dog in preparation for a huge upheaval in his otherwise perfect life: a new puppy.

Michelle Obama was the first to break the news that the First Family has expanded yet again, tweeting, “So excited to introduce the newest member of the Obama family—our puppy, Sunny!” The tweet included a picture of Sunny sitting with her big brother, Bo, on the White House lawn, as well as a link to a press release announcing the arrival of the adorable puppy, who’s also a Portuguese water dog. “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,” says the release. There’s also a video of Sunny scampering around. Unlike Bo, she appears to have no white markings, although most will agree she’s equally as photogenic.
