Bo Obama is still the top dog at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but he does have some company now, thanks to the addition of his new "sister, Sunny. The White House announced yesterday that the First Family just bought a second Portuguese Water Dog, a one-year-old female that's the spitting image of the existing First Dog. (She's the one on the right, without any white fur.) Sunny is the same breed as Bo, because Portuguese Water Dogs are supposed to be good for people with allergies, like Malia Obama.
