Here comes the sun!

As the official start of summer quickly approaches, humans in the Northern Hemisphere are heading outside – and so are their pets. Bo Obama, for one, caught some rays while walking through the White House Rose Garden on Wednesday.

Larry the 10 Downing Street cat, the U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron's pet and Bo's counterpart across the Pond, got his dose of Vitamin D on Wednesday while sitting on the doorstep of his famous residence.

Who knew the two sides had so much in common?

Bo Obama knows firsthand the importance of a garden.

The one in his own backyard is the source of one of his favorite treats (broccoli) and a valued place for his favorite First Lady, Michelle Obama.

It comes as no surprise, then, that Bo would figure prominently in Mrs. Obama's new book, American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America, in which she invites readers to learn about the White House crops and healthy eating.

It isn't everyday that Rachael Ray gets to meet the country's most beloved dog – but on a recent day at the White House, the talk show host got to meet Bo Obama for the first time.

For a special episode of the Rachael Ray Show, Ray joined Michelle Obama for a barbecue on the South Lawn. They cooked up three dishes using ingredients from the First Lady's vegetable garden.

As if that weren't enough of a treat, Ray (who makes no secret of her bias towards dogs) sat down with Bo for an "interview," during which they looked through Mrs. Obama's new book, American Grown.

President Obama Makes Light of Dog Wars

President Barack Obama had the audience in stitches during Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner, and with no subject did he draw bigger laughs than the ongoing "dog wars" being played out between political parties.

"I know everybody is predicting a nasty election, and thankfully, we've all agreed that families are off-limits," he said. "Dogs, however, are apparently fair game."

Let the wild rumpus start!

First Dog Bo joined President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, along with their daughters Malia and Sasha, for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday. During the Storytime Stage portion of this year's Let's Go, Let's Play, Let's Move!-themed event, the President read aloud the Maurice Sendak classic, Where the Wild Things Are.

While the President seemed to be roaring his terrible teeth and rolling his terrible eyes for the audience, Bo sat quietly at Mrs. Obama's feet.

Looks like the Easter Bunny has some competition this year!

First Dog Bo donned a pair of familiar pink ears for an early Easter outing with mom Michelle Obama on Wednesday, visiting military families at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

The First Lady and her constant companion brought Easter cookies and tickets for the White House's Easter Egg Roll to share with the residents of Fisher House, which houses military families who have a member receiving medical care, and even joined in for some arts and crafts activities.

"He is my son," the First Lady told David Letterman. "I have two girls – and a boy."

Obama has always said she considers herself the Mom-in-Chief, and in true mom form, she had nothing but praise for her furry kid. "Bo is wonderful," she said. "He is the smartest dog on the planet."

Every office needs a little puppy therapy – even the Oval Office.

Following a full few days with British Prime Minister David Cameron, President Barack Obama took a moment to spend some quality time with his big guy at home: Portuguese water dog Bo.

While the President crouched down to rub Bo's head, he appeared to say a few words to the dog, who has of late been enjoying time in his backyard.
