“First Dogs: American Presidents and Their Pets” was updated today with a new photo of President Barack Obama and the first family with White House pets Sunny and Bo. The new photo was taken in the Rose Garden on Easter Sunday 2015 by White House photographer Pete Souza. Sunny and Bo are Portuguese Water Dogs.

This widely popular Newseum exhibit showcases stories about some of the top dogs who have resided at the nation’s most prestigious address, including Laddie Boy, President Warren G. Harding’s Airedale who had his own chair at cabinet meetings; Pushinka, a Cold War gift to President John F. Kennedy from Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev; and King Tut, President Herbert Hoover’s German Shepherd police dog.
