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?
