Being the leader of the free world isn’t always an easy job. So it’s not surprising that many of our nation’s presidents have chosen to keep a furry companion in the White House for some unconditional love when approval ratings go down. … more ›

I'm sure these loving pets have always been great stress busters for our political leaders.

I am sure these pets helped relieve a lot of stress for the first families. Sound like in return they (at least most of them) led pampered lives.

I think it is great that the presidents and their families had pets in the White House. I'm sure those pets were taken care of really well. I would love for them all to be rescued animals, but as long as they are taken care of and loved, it doesn't matter.

Oh yes any animal whatever the president wants should be the first pet there should be a first dog, a first cat, a first fish, a first reptile, a first bird, a first rodent, a first anphibian, a first barnyard animal such as a cow or a horse and they all should either be rescues or pets that the president and his or her family had before they won the election these pets should not be cast aside.

I never understood why if the president had a dog that was mutt it did not go to the white house with them they just rejected it as soon as they became president. I don't car what breed of dog I have I can't even belive that Miley cyrus a teenage girl who is famous would set such a bad example for kids she cast away her older dog at her sixteenth birthday since her dog was not a cute little puppy she sent it to a shelter and got a puppy on her birthday. I won't care if I am ever famous or if I become president I will never cast aside my dog once it happens for a new dog just because my dog is not a puppy or just because it is not a pure bred dog and not because it is not ever a breed of dog seen with famous people or presidents I won't care I will keep the same dog and maybe rescue more dogs and other animals that need help along the way that is how I see it.

If that is true about Miley, that is a DISGRACE. She should be ashamed of herself!!!

Well said, Ches, and I agree with Michele, Miley Cyrus should be ashamed of herself.
