White House tours happen every day, but visitors scheduled for a Tuesday visit got a particularly memorable treat. The president and first lady — along with the well-trained first dog, Bo — surprised unsuspecting tour groups with handshakes, hellos and the occasional fist bump — and displayed it all on a live stream for the rest of the (envious) world to see.

Michelle Obama tweeted the big surprise just moments before it happened from her new FLOTUS Twitter account

Visitors young and old were greeted by the first couple, who are apparently recovering very well from Monday's day-long inaugural festivities. Obama pointed out that one visitor was wearing "Hawkeye's colors" — yellow and black to support the University of Iowa — and the fan giggled back, "Yes, yes I am!"

Many following #WHSurprise on Twitter were impressed by Bo's manners. Tweeted Luke Russert:
