Michelle Obama celebrated the first day of spring in the most adorable way by stepping out with the Obama dogs, Bo and Sunny. Late Monday, the former first lady shared a photo of the family pets on her Twitter and Instagram accounts to mark spring equinox.
The photo shows the family’s two Portuguese Water Dogs strolling around her Washington D.C. neighborhood.
“Look who has a spring in their step! Celebrate the #FirstDayofSpring by grabbing a friend, heading outside, and getting moving,” the 53-year-old captioned the photo.
The former first dogs are currently living in a new $4.3 million nine-bedroom mansion in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood since former President Barack Obama left office in January.
“There is a dog park in the middle of our neighborhood and our kids have been dying for Bo and Sunny to come to the dog park,” Catherine Merrill Williams, president and publisher of Washingtonian magazine and a neighbor of the Obamas, told People magazine. “My son and I ran into one of his press secretaries in Florida two weeks ago, in Fort Lauderdale, and my son said, ‘Could you please tell President Obama to send Bo and Sunny to the dog park in the neighborhood?’”
Just like Michelle and Barack Obama, the two family dogs are also getting used to life out of the White House.
While reports surfaced last week about Barack’s plans of staying for a month in French Polynesia, Michelle was seen appearing on an episode of Fox’s “MasterChef Junior” that aired Thursday night.
There has been no report so far on Obama’s plans in the French territory in the South Pacific, or whether his family will later join him.
Last week, reports also surfaced that Michelle and Barack’s elder daughter Malia Obama had turned down several modeling offers as she continues to intern for Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein in New York City. The 18-year-old has currently taken a gap year and will attend Harvard University in the fall.
