While Pope Francis continues to earn praise for his inspiring speech to the US congress on Thursday, he is also out and about meeting some of Americas most high-profile pooches.

Yes, you read that right – Pope Francis has officially met The First Dogs of America.


The iconic meeting took place on Wednesday, when President Obama welcomed the pope to the White House with a ceremony on the South Lawn.

Once the ceremony concluded, the pair went inside and Pope Francis was introduced to Bo and Sunny Obama, The Presidents much-loved Portuguese water dogs.

The meet and greet was captured by White House photographer Pete Souza.
