US President Barack Obama's dog may need to spend some time locked in the kennel after she bit a family friend.
The 18-year-old was visiting the White House on Monday when she went to pet and kiss four-year-old Sunny, and was bitten on the face, TMZ reports.
Pictures show the teen with a reasonable gash under her eye. It's understood the Obamas' family physician, Dr Ronny Jackson, decided the cut was so bad, she needed stitches.
It is likely the girl will have a small scar but otherwise make a full recovery.
Sunny's breed - Portuguese water dog - is considered a very friendly dog, even toward strangers.
The Obamas have two Portuguese water dogs - eight-year-old Bo, who has the title of 'First Dog', and four-year-old Sunny.
Bo was gifted to the Obama family by Senator Ted Kennedy.
