We want our presidents to love dogs. Little has changed in the 88 years since the American Kennel Club declared, “The country at large takes a natural interest in the President’s dogs and judges him by the taste and discrimination he shows in his selection…. Any man who does not like dogs and want them about does not deserve to be in the White House.” How much do you know about presidential pups?  Can you match these occupants of the White House and their owners? (See the answers below.)

a.Fala (Scottish terrier)
b.Buddy (chocolate lab)
c.Pasha (terrier)
