The Golden Girl scored some alone time with the First Dog during a visit to Washington, D.C., on Monday, playing with Bo on the White House lawn before meeting his dad, President Barack Obama.

"It was a thrill to be with Mr. Obama," she told the Huffington Post, "but the big thrill was being with Bo."

Having been in the capital to give a speech at the Smithsonian, White carved out some time to swing by the Oval Office, where she immediately made friends with the Portuguese water dog.

"He's the cutest guy you've ever seen in your life," she said. "I spent a half-hour with him on my lap."
