I was wrong!

I told you a few days ago that I was following The First Dogs on Twitter, which I thought was some sort of official account set up for Champ and Major. I should have known that the people in the White House had better things to do than to curate a Twitter account about the dogs. There is no ‘official” account for the dogs or for the coming First Cat at this time. Everything you see on Twitter currently (and there are several accounts) are fan pages.

It does appear that @FLOTUS will ocassionally tweet about the dogs.

I regret spreading misinformation.

There’s not a blue check of authenticity yet, but I believe the place to go for tweets from Champ and Major Biden is @TheFirstDogs. Rumor has it they are not at the White House yet; they’re waiting for everything to calm down a bit.

There’s also an account for @TheFirstCatUS, for the promised rescue cat.

Can’t wait to start seeing what’s on the minds of all the first pets. No word on who is helping them with the typing. It’s tough to tweet when you don’t have thumbs!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

From the Delaware Humane Association:

From shelter pup at the Delaware Humane Association to First Dog at the White House, Major Biden is barking proof that every dog can live the American dream. To celebrate this historic moment – the first shelter dog ever to live in the White House – and help raise funds to help more shelter animals like Major find their furever homes, DHA & Pumpkin Pet Insurance have teamed up to throw the world’s largest virtual party for dogs!

Major Biden

Major BidenThe Delaware Humane Association is pleased to announce the adoption of Major by Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill. The couple fell in love with the dog after fostering him in their home.

According to the Delaware Humane Association Facebook page, “Major was 1 of 6 puppies who were brought to DHA after coming in contact with something toxic in their home. Their original owner was unable to afford veterinary care so they surrendered. With the help of our friends at VSCD, together we provided lifesaving care, shared their story here and that we were looking for fosters for them. Joe Biden caught wind of them and the rest is history!”

What a great start to the holiday season!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
