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.

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.

Puppy Love! Bo Obama Gets Asked Out on Doggy Date

Bo Obama Gets Asked Out on Doggy Date

Originally posted 03/22/2013 07:00PM

He may be only 4 years old, but it seems Bo Obama is already a ladies' man.

A Goldendoodle named Ramona, who resides at the Oregon Humane Society, has taken her affections for the first dog to the Internet, posting a video that asks Bo to serve as the grand marshal for the Humane Society's Doggie Dash fundraiser in May.

In the clip, Ramona tries to contact Bo through Twitter, Facebook and even over the phone before settling on a letter as the best way to ask him out. But with the entire saga now available to view on YouTube, perhaps the longing lady will get her wish, much like the high school teen who asked Kate Upton to prom or the Marines who scored dates from Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake.

After inspecting this season's holiday decorations – in which he is prominently featured through a life-size replica and Bo-flake ornaments – the first dog also graces the Obama family's Christmas card.

Iowa artist Larassa Kabel's painting depicts a snow-covered Bo running across the White House's North Lawn, an homage to this 2010 snapshot, which caught the 4-year-old playing in the snow during a February blizzard.
