On Monday, a White House visitor, described as a “family friend” of the Obama’s, was apparently bitten in the face by the First Family’s dog; TMZ broke the news on Thursday.
According to the publication, Sunny, a four-year-old Portuguese water dog, is responsible for the bite, which left the female visitor with a wound to her face. The girl’s cheek wound required stitches, and the bite may leave a scar, but other long-term complications aren’t anticipated.
The un-named bite victim was attempting to give Sunny a kiss (apparently an unwanted kiss) when the bite took place. While people typically enjoy showing affection with hugs and kisses, many dogs do not appreciate the close face-to-face contact (especially from strangers!) and experts warn that such actions may lead to…you guessed it, bites.
According to TMZ, the White House has not commented on the unfortunate incident.
