First dogs Sunny and Bo Obama were two of the famous names on hand for the event, which also featured appearances by singer Ariana Grande and Jim Carrey.

According to The Washington Post, the crowd screamed when they laid eyes on the pups, who donned red leashes on the South Lawn where more than 30,000 guests were invited by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to enjoy egg hunting, face painting and obstacle courses.

With Michelle Obama traveling to China with her daughters, President Barack Obama is fending for himself in the White House.

Fortunately, the commander-in-chief has a concerned friend eager to check up on him: Ellen DeGeneres, who quizzed the POTUS on his well-being at the First Lady's behest.
