New first dog Sunny got a little frisky at the White House.

First lady Michelle Obama yanked on the new pup’s leash as Ashtyn Gardner, 2, from Mobile, Ala., lost her balance while greeting the Portuguese Water Dog.

The faces of horrified chefs can be seen in the background.

Little Ashtyn was at the White House for a holiday arts-and-crafts event in the State Dining Room for the children of military personnel. 

Sunny recently joined older brother, Bo, as the first family’s pets.
