First Lady Michelle Obama announced a new addition to the Obama family this evening. A new puppy. 

FLOTUS tweeted out a photo of Sunny, their newest pet family member, lounging around the South Lawn of the White House with the family's dog, Bo.

Sunny, like Bo, is a Portuguese Water Dog. She was born in Michigan last June and arrived at the White House today. Last October, the First Lady told reporters that she hosted a "doggie play date" for Bo because he wasn't getting enough "dog interaction." Problem solved.
