Presidential dogs


As the nation pays homage to Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln this Presidents Day, we’d like to salute their dogs.

Life as our national leader can be rugged. As Harry Truman, our 33rd president, once said, “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.”

How can you not feel affection for the Father of our country, George Washington, knowing he named one of his hounds “Sweetlips”?

And it’s comforting to think that as Lincoln, our 16thth president, wandered the White House late at night pondering freedom and slavery, victory and surrender, he may have been followed by his dog Jip.
