Biden family dog Champ has died, aged 13. This appears in a press release posted on the official Twitter page of the US President.
– Today we share with a heavy heart the news that our beloved German Shepherd dog Champ has passed away peacefully in his home. He has been our loyal, loving companion for the past 13 years and has been very much loved by the entire Biden family, the press release says.
Champ joined the Biden family in December 2008 – just weeks after Biden took office as Barack Obama’s vice president.
“There was nothing he loved more than curling up at our feet in front of the fireplace at the end of the day, comforting during meetings and sunbathing in the White House garden,” the statement said.
During his younger dog years, he thrived on chasing golf balls in the garden of the United States Navy Laboratory or running after Biden’s grandchildren in the backyard of Delaware, the family writes.
– He was with us in our happy moments and in our sad days, in every feeling that was not spoken. We love our sweet, good guy and will miss him forever.
When the Biden family went to the White House, they took the Major and Champ dogs with them.
– The President’s family wanted to get well before taking the dogs from Delaware to Washington. Michael Larosa, Jill Pitton’s press secretary, says Champ enjoys his new dog bed by the fireplace and wants to run around Major Lawn CNN In January.
The White House has a long tradition of keeping dogs and animals, but during the presidency of Donald Trump, the house was free of fur animals. Barack Obama and his family had Poe and Sunny dogs when they lived in the presidential residence.
The former died in May. Bo went to the White House in 2009 and belongs to the Portuguese Water Dog breed. Obama described the dog as “a true friend and loyal companion.”
– For more than a decade, Poe has been a constant, gentle presence in our lives – Glad to see us every day in between our good days, our bad days and so on, it says in the post.
Obama also praised the dog’s patience and endurance for the chaos caused by living in the White House.
“We will miss him so much,” Obama wrote.
