USA TODAY - A little accident at today's showing of the White House decorations, but everything is okay.

A little girl took a tumble backwards while greeting President Obama's pet dog Sunny, but could later be seen hugging the presidential pooch.

Witness accounts differ. Some say the girl -- identified as Ashtyn Gardner, 2, from Mobile, Ala. -- lost her balance; other say Sunny may have bumped her.

First lady Michelle Obama, who was conducting a tour of the new White House holiday decorations, helped the little girl up after restraining Sunny.
