Barack Obama News Archive
The latest (and cutest) addition to the First Family, Sunny Obama, is a media darling!
She's the Obama family's new dog and she's finally warming up to the press!!
We previously mentioned that she started off hating paparazzi, refusing to pose for any of the White House photographer's pictures.
Now it seems she's warmed up to living her life in the limelight.
At a White House press briefing, several members of the media got to meet Sunny, who even laid down for some belly rubs!!
NBC's Peter Alexander got to pet the First Pooch and said:
"It's safe to say the press corps is smitten."
Aw! We'd be smitten too!
She looks like such a sweetheart!! Too cute!

President Barack Obama actually took some time out of his insanely busy schedule to talk to CNN.
The question on everyone's mind… why did they get Sunny?
Not that we're complaining, we LOVE the newest addition to the First Family!
But we were curious why now? Did Bo need a companion?
We could totes understand Bo getting lonely and needing a buddy to play with!
Especially with his papa busy running the whole world!!
Check out the video (above) to hear why they got Sunny, from the President's own mouth!
Sunny Obama! Bo's new sister!
Sunny must already know she's part of the first family, because she's certainly acting a bit like royalty.
In recent pics shared by the White House's official photographer, Pete Souza, Sunny turns away from the camera.
Ha! Bo loves having his picture taken but Sunny is a real diva!
Whether they're hanging in the rose garden or posing at the colonnade, Sunny really isn't feeling all the photography.
C'mon, Sunny! You're so dang cute! Let's see that pretty face of yours!

Omg omg omg!!!
This is amazing! The Obama family has grown by one.
Bo Obama must've been getting bored, always waiting for his papa to finish work and come play.
But the President's work is never finished, so Bo must've been a lonely pup…
Until the Obamas got him a sister!! That's right, the White House is now home to Sunny Obama, another Portuguese water dog.
She's a hypoallergenic breed, like Bo, so Malia's allergies won't be triggered. That's great!
The pup is only one-year-old and she's a cute bundle of energy! Her and Bo are already best friends!
So adorbz!! Welcome to the family, Sunny!
Check out the video (above) to see the two first doggies running around together!
President Obama should be one of the busiest men in the country, if not the world!
But that doesn't mean he still doesn't make time for his dog!!
Bo doesn't look up and see the leader of the free world, he just sees his papa.
Luckily, his pops loves him!
Pete Souza, the White House's official photographer, thankfully happened to be nearby and caught this wonderful photo op!
The president, hair noticeably graying, looked like he need some stress relief.
What better way to relax than by petting your loving doggy?!
Look at Barack just crouched down like that, smiling while scratching his pup!
It's so CUTE!!

The Obama administration is considering using seismic air gun blasts to search for oil and gas under the ocean seabed.
The problem with this is that the blasts are 100,000 times louder than a jet engine and they'd occur every 10 seconds for months!!
There's a very good chance that 138,500 whales and dolphins will be injured and maybe even killed by these blasts.
Luckily, they have Ted Danson fighting for them. He said:
You don't know Bo Obama, if you don't think the pup will do anything to help celebrate Easter!
Especially on Easter!!!
Here's what the President's twitter feed said, along with the picture (above):
