This day is for the dogs at the White House.
They're already making themselves heard, too.
Champ and Major Biden, the Biden family’s two German shepherds, joined the president and first lady at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on Sunday. "The First Family wanted to get settled before bringing the dogs down to Washington from Delaware. Champ is enjoying his new dog bed by the fireplace, and Major loved running around on the South Lawn," a spokesman for the first lady said.
During their first day "on the job," Champ and Major could even be heard making their own policy announcements outside the Oval Office.
According to CNN, Champ has been with the Biden family for more than a decade.
While rescue pets have lived in America's house under previous administrations, Major is the first-ever shelter dog to take up residence at the White House. He was adopted in November 2018, just months before the former vice president announced his presidential run.
A feline could also be on the horizon for the Biden family, as the first lady recently told WTTG she’d like to get a cat. In a video posted over the weekend, Press Secretary Jen Psaki said she’s "also wondering about the cat, because the cat is going to dominate the Internet whenever the cat is announced and wherever that cat is found."
Champ and Major are the first pets at the White House in four years.
President Trump’s family did not have any.
