4th of July: Michelle Obama and presidential pets Sunny and Bo wish Americans a happy Independence Day
The two Portuguese water dogs wear American flag accessories in the clip
Michelle Obama and presidential pets Sunny and Bo joined in with Independence Day celebrations in the US on Friday, by posting an adorable video on Vine.
Released via the official White House Vine account at midday on 4 July, the six-second clip shows the First Lady wishing viewers a "happy 4th July".
The shot then pans to the Portuguese water dogs on the floor of the White House, who are dressed in American flag accessories.
All-black Sunny sits happily in her scarf, while the white-and-black furred Bo playfully bats his glasses and baseball cap off his nose.
The video has been watched over 185,000 times since it was posted.
The video comes amid country-wide revelries to commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence at a meeting in Philadelphia in 1776.
