This week, the Obamas welcomed a new member to the first family -- a 14-month-old female Portuguese Water dog called Sunny.
In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Friday, the president revealed some cute (and messy) details about the new puppy.
"Bo was getting lonely," the president said when asked why they got Sunny. "[He] was getting a little down in the dumps inside the house." With Sunny around, though, 4-year-old Bo has a playmate.

First Lady Michelle Obama, meanwhile, is in "full parenting mode," the president said -- especially because little Sunny has already had a few accidents in the White House.
The president didn't seemed too concerned though.
"We live in rental housing. We didn't have to put down a deposit," he said. "But we are making sure that it gets cleaned up for the next occupant."
