Amid all the controversy and chatter about the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold his healthcare law, President Barack Obama still hasn’t forgotten to make time for his Number 1 pal: First Dog Bo.

On Wednesday, the Commander-in-Chief’s Twitter feed posted a photo of the pair sharing a tender moment, simply captioned, “Buddies.” In it, the President is seen looking lovingly at his pet, and giving him a rub.

While speaking at a New York City fundraiser earlier in the month, Obama noted that his dog’s popularity far outranks his own, saying, “People come to the White House – first they ask, where’s Michelle? They ask, where are the girls? And then they say, where’s Bo?”
