2013 Official Christmas Card Only Features the Four-Legged Obamas

White House Christmas cardiLoveDogs: You won’t see a picture of Barack, Michelle, Malia and Sasha smiling beside a tree on the official 2013 White House Christmas card.

No… just as last year and in 2011, the only Obama family members on this year’s card are those with four legs – and this time, it’s Bo and his new friend, Sunny; a bit odd!

The pop-up card, designed by Michigan artist Chris Hankinson of PopUpCards.com, features the two Portuguese Water Dogs walking in front of a 3D White House.

“As we gather around this season, may the warmth and joy of the holidays fill your home,” the card says. All six Obamas have signed the card – Bo and Sunny’s signatures include their (faux) paw prints.

Speaking of “gather around,” that happens to be the holiday theme this year at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

“It celebrates the stories and traditions that bring us together this special time of year,” says the White House website. “As members of one American family, we are united in a story built over the course of two centuries.”

During a holiday decorating party at the White House earlier this month, Sunny made headlines when she bumped noses with 2-year-old Ashtyn Gardner, causing the little girl to fall to the ground.

Although the news media painted Sunny as a bit of a monster (“Sunny Obama: Terror of Toddlers” was the U.S. News and World Report headline), a video showed that the incident was simply an accident… and no big deal.

“If Ashtyn remembers anything from the event, it’s getting that big hug from the first lady and playing with the dogs,” her dad told CBS News.

Replicas of a more subdued Sunny alongside Bo are also featured on the 2013 gingerbread White House. You can watch it being created in this official video:
