In a Twitter photo shared by First Lady Michelle Obama, the dogs are seen sitting ever-so-politely at an ornately decorated table with a caption that reads: "Bone appétit!"

Ruff Day! Sunny Obama Takes Down 2-Year-Old Girl

Sunny Obama Takes Down 2-Year-Old, We Consult Bo

We've all been there: Christmastime makes everything more intense and everything is just emotional and then someone's in your way and ...

Okay, we're not going to accuse junior first dog Sunny Obama of going all Grinch on a 2-year-old at Wednesday's White House holiday celebration. We would never imply that little Ashtyn Gardner was anything but lovely before she took the tumble to top all tumbles – the fall to dethrone Jennifer Lawrence as the Queen of Highly Public Falls. She definitely did not – just speculating – poke fun at his dark chocolate replica featured in the annual gingerbread display. She would never.

Either way, what went down at the decor unveiling could totally sabotage Sunny's approval rating. As the children of military families gathered for a day of crafts and festive fun, Gardner's well-intentioned run-in with Sunny turned into the stuff Michelle Obama's nightmares are made of.

To be fair, Sunny only startled the tot, who then stepped back and tripped over a walker (watch below). Still, we know you're new here Sunny. We know it's your first Christmas in the White House. But you're doing it wrong.

With dogs Sunny and Bo on hand, the dressed-up family – sans the President – had smiles on their faces as a horse-drawn carriage pulled up to the North Portico of the executive mansion with its precious cargo.

It's the new addition heard 'round the world: On Monday evening, the Obamas announced they had added another dog to their furry family, 1-year-old Sunny.

But just one day into her life as a public figure, and it seems Sunny is less-than-thrilled with the attention. In recent photographs shared on Instagram by Pete Souza, the official photographer of the White House, the Portuguese water pup appears to be saying, "No photos please!"

The White House is going to the dogs!

The Obama family announced on Instagram Monday evening that they've added to the four-legged part of their family, welcoming a new pup, Sunny. The 1-year-old female was born in Michigan last June, and arrived at the White House today, according to whitehouse.gov. Just like big brother Bo, she is a Portuguese water dog – a hypoallergenic breed that won't trigger 15-year-old First Daughter Malia's allergies.

The Daily Treat: Bo Obama Is Apparently a Mean Girls Fan

When Gretchen Wieners tried to coin the word "fetch," we don't think she meant it literally.

But nonetheless, nine years after the release of Mean Girls, her fans are still carrying the torch on her behalf – and that includes First Dog Bo.

"Bo, stop trying to make fetch happen," quipped the official Twitter of the White House on Tuesday, sharing a photo of the Portuguese water dog sitting patiently with a tennis ball in his mouth.
