It’s National Dogs in Politics Day!


For National Dogs in Politics Day on September 23 we celebrate The First Dog of the United States (FDOTUS), who holds an important place in the hearts of all Americans. Dogs and other pets have a long history of living in the White House; they have endeared us to their owners (the First Families) and have even swayed the vote of animal lovers with interests in the rights of their furry friends.

Learn more about the history of man’s best friend and their role in politics today as well as some fun activities to celebrate the day.

Do you know which president is rumored to have kept a pet alligator in the White House?
