Cuteness alert! Bo Obama, who first captured Americans' hearts back in 2009, finally has a playmate.

The Obama family will be chasing a new puppy around the White House, a 1-year-old Portugese water dog of the same breed as the family's first dog, Bo.

Photos of "Sunny" appeared on the White House's web site and social media feeds Monday evening, while Michelle Obama took to Twitter to express her excitement.

According to the White House, Sunny was born last summer in Michigan. Her "cheerful personality" inspired her name and the Obamas hope she'll prove to be the perfect companion for Bo.

Here's a video of Sunny frolicking around the White House gardens with her BFF. Beware, there's slow-motion cuteness ahead.
