Hallelujah, there will be dogs in the White House again. And for the first time, a shelter dog: Major, who was a pretty damned adorable puppy, even soaking wet:

Major was surrendered to a shelter in Delaware along with his littermates in 2018. He was fostered and then adopted by Joe and Jill Biden. Patrick Carroll, the executive director of the Delaware Humane Association, remembered Major’s adoption day in an interview with The New York Times. He said Biden came in, professing he was in a hurry to get through the process, but ended up being there more than an hour hanging out with the shelter staff, telling stories and taking selfies with them. “He was very kind and engaging, as he always is,” Carroll said.

Major will join Champ, the Bidens’ senior dog, in their new home in January. Champs’s already familiar with the White House. The 12-year-old grew up there.

He’s also an old hand at this. Look how much he loves being used for the campaign.

Cute dogs, and both of them are smarter than the current stinky-maker in the White House.

Puppers in the White House again, yay! Also they are such handsome boys! I hope they have a great time in their new(ish) home!

I’m sure they’ll be happy once the former stench wears off
