Noted last night televised reports indicating that the President and First Lady surprised a number of tour guests yesterday.

I'd put it as a fortunate timing.

Always many factors -- never hurts to have nice friends or good timing. Cool story for all the students. Nice little video. Bo had his eyes on Dakota's coat for a good 10 seconds before going for it.
