SOCKS WHITE HOUSE

With all of this talk of a new presidential dog I thought I would share some fun facts about past president’s pets.

1) Calvin Coolidge had a pygmy hippo named Billy.  Billy sired 23 little hippos, and many of the pygmy hippos you see in American zoos today are his offspring.  Coolidge practically had a zoo, he had six dogs, a bobcat, a goose, a donkey, a cat, two lion cubs, an antelope, and a wallaby.

2) Hoover had a ton of dogs, his son however owned a pair of alligators that would sometimes wander around the White House grounds.

3) George H.W. Bush’s pet springer spaniel Millie collaborated with the First Lady on Millie’s Book: As Dictated to Barbara Bush. She also birthed a son that accompanied George W. Bush into the White House.

4) Martin Van Buren received two tiger cubs as a gift from the Sultan of Oman. Congress supposedly made him give the gift to a zoo.

5) Dr. Johnson, Bishop Doane, Fighting Bob Evans, and Father O’Grady were the names of Teddy Roosevelt’s children’s Guinea Pigs.  Pretty much the most amazing names ever!  Roosevelt also had a pet badger named Josiah AND a black bear cub named Jonathan Edwards.

6) At 17 years old Socks the cat is still alive.  He lives with Bill Clinton’s secretary, Betty Currie as he did not get along with the Clinton’s dog Buddy.  That is an old effin cat.
