What to do when record temperatures roll into town? Do as Bo Obama does: Find the shade!

The First Dog, whom we haven’t spotted out for several weeks, kicked back on the South Lawn on Wednesday, when the high temperature in Washington was 99 degrees.

After a few minutes in the heat and humidity, the Portuguese water dog stopped looking excited and seemed ready for a nap.
