In order for there to be a Top Dog, there must be a second dog.
And so it is for Bo today.
The first photos on Tumblr come from Pete Souza, official White House photographer, also of Portuguese descent.
Here’s Bo and Sunny, the new family puppy for the Obama family, hanging out on the South Lawn this afternoon. http://t.co/g3egoF64XL

Sunny is a she, more than a year old already, born in Michigan in June 2012.
Like Bo, who is a he, the breed is anti-allergenic — and playful.
The White House says, “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.”
They’re already rolling and Tumblring on the South Lawn:
It’s worth recalling that at his reelection in November, President Barack Obama had these words for his daughters:
“Sasha and Malia… before our very eyes, you’re growing up to become two strong, smart, beautiful young women, just like your mom. And I am so proud of you guys. But I will say that for now, one dog’s probably enough.”
Score a win for the girls.
