Bad Dog, Sunny!

The newest member of the Obama family got a little rambunctious as she stepped into the spotlight today.

Sunny, the Obama's new puppy, joined the first lady this afternoon for some holiday arts and crafts with the children of military families. Michelle Obama walked Sunny around the State Dining Room of the White House on a leash as the children made paper flowers and decorated edible ornaments with an array of candy (several little ones appeared to be doing more snacking than decorating).

Bounding with excitement, Sunny got a bit too frisky at one point and knocked Ashtyn Gardner, 2, of Mobile, Ala., to the ground. The first lady gasped and immediately helped the toddler to her feet. Dressed in a bright-red dress with a big black bow, Ashtyn appeared to be fine.

The first lady then introduced her to Sunny, who moments later playfully licked Ashtyn's face.
