First Dogs Returns to the Newseum
One of the Newseum's most popular exhibits is back in time for the dog days of summer! "First Dogs: American Presidents and Their Pets" showcases images and stories about some of the nation's most famous canine companions.
As the old saying goes: If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog — and most U.S. presidents have. From George Washington and his foxhounds to FDR's Fala — who had his own press secretary — to Bo Obama and his energetic new running mate, Sunny, more than 50 dogs (not to mention numerous cats, a few goats and even a one-legged rooster) have resided at the nation's most prestigious address.
