Having a dog in the White House is nothing new - in fact, 32 of the 43 Presidents in US history - over 74% - had a pup. (Many even had a few!)
Founding Fathers like George Washington, Abe Lincoln, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson ... as well as more modern day Presidents like John F. Kennedy, George W. Bush and Barack Obama - among many other leaders of the free world - all found comfort and companionship in man's best friend.
Check out the following gallery of some of the most historic (and powerful) pups in United States history.
Happy Presidents Day to everyone on Team SportLeash and a special shout out to President Barack Obama and all Our Leaders who have gone before!
