Sunny Obama Makes Her (Slobbery) Video Debut

Posted on

Sorry, Bo – it seems that Sunny is the emerging star on the furry side of the Obama family.

The newest presidential pup (she joined the first family in August) makes her video debut in a PSA for the Drink Up campaign, a new initiative chaired by First Lady Michelle Obama that encourages people to drink water.

In the 16-second clip – yes, Sunny’s moment in the spotlight is brief – the Portuguese water dog runs across the White House lawn with brother Bo before stopping for a quick drink (good dog!).

In her nine months with the Obamas, Sunny has made quite the splash, charming reporters, impressing guests at the White House Easter Egg Roll and State Dinner and even getting a little overly affectionate with visitors (whoops!). With a video campaign under her belt now, we can only imagine what the pooch will do next: A dog food campaign? Reality TV? Time will tell.
