White House pets gone wild!
Down, Sunny! The First Family's Portuguese Water Dog's frisky romp that bowled over two-year-old Ashtyn Gardner during a recent White House holiday party was hardly the first instance of a First Pet behaving badly. In fact, President George W. Bush's beloved Barney may have set the gold standard by chomping on a reporter's finger.
** SECOND IN A SERIES OF SIX ** Ashtyn Gardner, 2, from Mobile, Ala., gets her foot caught on a walker belonging to another child, left, and begins to lose her balance as she is greeted by Sunny, one of the presidential dogs, as she is held on a leash by first lady Michelle Obama, as children of military families participate in a holiday arts and crafts event in the State Dining Room at the White House in Washington, Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013.
