(Newser) – A new puppy is following in the footsteps of White House pets including Lyndon Johnson's beagles and Andrew Jackson's swearing parrot. Sunny is a female Portuguese water dog—the same breed as Bo, the dog President Obama promised daughters Sasha and Malia after his 2008 victory. Sunny is "full of energy and very affectionate" and the Obamas "picked her name because it fit her cheerful personality," says the White House website, which adds that the family is making a donation to the Washington Humane Society in honor of the new arrival.
