According to The Washington Post, the crowd screamed when they laid eyes on the pups, who donned red leashes on the South Lawn where more than 30,000 guests were invited by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to enjoy egg hunting, face painting and obstacle courses.

Indian Acid Attack Survivor Finds Love – and a Job as a TV News Anchor

Eight years ago, when a spurned suitor threw acid on her face, Laxmi thought her life was over. Finding love and achieving her dream of a career in television seemed impossible.

But on March 4, honored by First Lady Michelle Obama with the International Women of Courage Award, Laxmi talked about her struggle – and triumph.

Referring to the man who attacked her when she was 16 after she refused his advances – he was jailed for what he did but apparently his sentence will soon be up – she read a poem she composed: "You haven't thrown acid on my face, you threw it on my dreams ... The time will be burdened for you. Then you will know that I am alive, free and thriving and living my dreams."

The petite 23-year-old has undergone a dozen operations to repair the disfiguring burns on her face and body. For years she felt suicidal. A second blow was the death of her beloved father, who sank into depression over his daughter's agony. Eventually she emerged from her despair with a determination to prevent other women from suffering a similar fate.
