It seems only fitting that on Presidents Day weekend we should look at some Presidential Pets!
Opie and I were surfing the internet and ran across a great slide show. Of course AP won’t allow their stuff to be shared on a blog. So, we’ll just have to do this the old fashioned way.
Here is the link!
You could almost forgive some of these presidents for stuff they did or didn’t do when you see how much they love their dogs, cats and
—- well..let’s just say the White house has been home to more than dogs and cats!
But then again, notice the names of their pets. I think it’s kind of telling.
If I were President, my Chief of Staff might suggest that Opie have a name change to fit his position as First Dog!
These names seem to fit his Snorkie Personality.
He looks like he’s above it all in this photo!
“Go ahead take my photo, peasant. I shall not deign to look at you. You are beneath my gaze!
Let them eat kibble!”
However, that might not be in keeping with our Democratic ideals.
Don’t want all the people to revolt over my dog’s name, right?
So, how about these?
I wouldn’t mind changing his name to Happiness (First name –Pursuit of)
Yes, Happiness! We could call him Hap or Happy!
Why not name your favorite slide in a comment to this posting. (Try not to be partisan about this! No matter how villainous you think that particular commander in chief.) Which photo do you like best?
I’ll start you off.
I love the picture of Jackie and John-John and other Kennedy kids with a pack of dogs!
And those dogs appear to be nameless!
