Sunny the Presidential Puppy Gets a Little Bit Too Excited at a White House Event

FLOTUS saves the day when the pup knocks down a little girl attending a White House Christmas event

First Lady Michelle Obama got a taste of chaos at a recent White House Christmas party for military families when Sunny the puppy got a little too excited when meeting two-year-old Ashtyn Gardner. After all, they’re almost the same size! When the puppy jumped up to greet her, the toddler fell backwards. Mrs. Obama, in true fast-thinking mom form, pulled back on the leash and helped Ashtyn to her feet, all in a matter of seconds. All’s well that ends well: No one was hurt, Sunny finally got a cute nuzzle from Ashtyn, and Ashtyn got a big hug from the first lady... not to mention a few hundred thousand views from the rest of the world!
