Get to Know a Dog Day: Past Presidents and their Pooches

We decided to put a different spin on today's Get To Know a Dog Day. Since there has been a lot of talk lately about Joe Biden's new dog (which he bought from a puppy mill) and also about Barrack Obama getting a new pooch, we thought you might enjoy getting to know some of our past presidents' canine companions.  

So without any further some of our most memorable presidential canines.
