Later in the event, a young girl named Jill asked the First Lady whether the two dogs know any tricks. Obama answered:
Yes. Bo can sit, speak [and] roll over. They can both sit and down. They can both heel. Bo is very good at giving you his paw, he can give you a high five. Yeah, he knows a few tricks. Sunny, if I spent more time with Sunny, she would know more because she's really smart. But I've been a little busy. So when I leave here I'm going to try to teach her some tricks too.
Bo, an 8-year-old male, and Sunny, who will turn 3 later this year, are both Portuguese water dogs. Over the years, they've lived extraordinary lives, even meeting famed guests of the White House such as the Pope and R2-D2.
As exciting as the perks of living in the White House are, these dogs are probably most grateful that they have such an energetic human to care for them - because that likely means a lot more walks and playtime together.
