Current Event Dog (!?!?!) of the Day: Sunny Obama

Sunny Obama

Proving once again that once you go black, you never go back, the Obamas have added a new black Portuguese water dog to the family: Sunny Obama.

Not to be outdone by the British royal family’s leaked portraits, the Obamas took to twitter to announce Sunny Obama as their royal addition.

First lady Michelle Obama tweeted out at about 8 p.m. ET, “So excited to introduce the newest member of the Obama family — our puppy, Sunny!

The new puppy, named Sunny Obama for her friendly nature, is of the same breed as 4-year-old Bo Obama. Sunny, however, is a girl – so maybe their hoping love sparks will fly.

The White House released this joyful statement on their blog along with some pictures of Bo and Sunny becoming fast friends:

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.

In honor of Sunny, and perhaps to hide the fact that she was obviously purchased from a dog breeder and NOT the Humane Society, the Obamas are making a donation to the Washington Humane Society.

And while Bo seems pretty happy to have a new playmate, some Americans are pissed at the first family for adopting another dog that taxpayers have to feed! The nerve of the president for getting his children a family pet!

Here are a few comments from Fox News viewers (I didn’t even have to scroll…sigh)

“Great….another mouth to feed for taxpayers.”

“I wonder how many American children could have been cared for with the money they spend to keep a dog groomed and cared for. I wonder how many children have died that didn’t have adequate access to a medevac air transport when a dog gets to ride around on “Air Obama”.”

“I feel sorry for that poor puppy, she will be subjected to Michelle’s vegan diet , and listening to Barry’s lies. The puppy will commit suicide in 2 weeks , I guarantee it.”

“I hope the Obama’s are paying the bills for Sunny‘s care and feeding. I thought the White House had no money; which is why tours were cancelled for the children who own the White House.”

“I hope they don’t eat it.”

Well, I do agree with that last comment. It would be a shame if the first family ate Sunny Obama.
