The great thing about 2-year-olds is that glamour doesn’t exist for them. Sure, it’s great for a baby if her parents are huge pop stars who hobnob at the White House, but the No. 1 item on her agenda is still “doggy doggy doggy doggy doggy.”

Beyonce visited said White House this weekend to perform for Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, and she brought husband Jay Z and their daughter, Blue Ivy, along for the ride. Blue, clad in cat ears and an adorable white tulle gown that I would have murdered for when I was little, got to check out the White House Christmas tree and watch her mom perform, according to the sweet photos posted on her mama’s Tumblr.

But could any of that compare to the sublime fuzziness of the Obamas’ Portuguese water dog, Bo? Beyonce posted several blurry but adorable snaps of Bo and Blue making friends. Maybe, instead of renting out a zoo and buying her a miniature Porsche for her second birthday last week, Jay and B should have gotten Blue a puppy.
