The family of President Barack Obama welcomed its newest member at the White House on Monday: a dog named Sunny.

Sunny, born in Michigan in June 2012, is a Portuguese water dog just like the Obamas' other dog, Bo.

"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," according to a post on the White House blog.

The Obamas are making a donation to the Washington Humane Society in Sunny's honor, according to the blog.

"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 blog post read.
