In an under-reported story last Monday, one of the Obama family’s dogs bit a White House guest on the face when she went to pet her.
The Obama family owns two Portuguese Water Dogs, Sunny and Bo, which up to this point have been well behaved (at least as far as has been reported). On Monday, however, an 18-year-old girl was visited the White House and went to pet and kiss Sunny when things went terribly wrong.
Sunny then bit the girl’s face on her upper left cheek, leaving a small gash and bruise that required stitches from the White House’s doctor, Dr. Ronny Jackson. The girl posted pictures of her injury on social media, along with an angry message directed towards Sunny, which were quickly picked up by various outlets.
TMZ reports that when they reached out to the White House for comment, they declined to provide any further information.
President Obama had to deal with a small domestic crisis at the White House — a family friend was bitten by Sunny, the First Family’s 4-year-old dog.
We’re told the incident occurred Monday when the 18-year-old was visiting the White House. Sources connected to the girl tell us she went to pet and kiss Sunny, and the dog bit her on the face.
Sunny — a female Portuguese Water Dog — left a nasty gash under the girl’s eye. We’re told the Obamas’ family physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, checked her out and decided she needed stitches.
She’s gonna be okay, but we’re told she’ll likely have a small scar … which upset her. She posted various pics of the injury and her visit to Dr. Jackson on social media.
The bite is out of character for the breed, which typically is not aggressive in family situations. The Obamas have 2 Portuguese Water Dogs — 8-year-old Bo has the title,”First Dog.”
We reached out to the White House. No comment on the incident.
The unnamed visitor posted several pictures of herself with Malia Obama in what appeared to be a doctor’s office in the White House.
If Obama manages his dog training habits like he does this country then I’m not surprised that Sunny would have an angry outburst such as this. Or perhaps Obama had been taking out his anger at Donald Trump’s victory on his dogs, putting them in a foul mood and making them wary of people getting to close to them. In any case, it’s clear Sunny was not in the mood for visitors on Monday, perhaps getting on edge due to the anxiety of Obama’s staff being out of job in a few days, and being forced to find employment in a terrible jobs market for their backgrounds.
One thing’s for sure, if this was Donald Trump’s dog, the mainstream media would be calling for his resignation and possible impeachment.
