[Ed. – Sad to report the death of a pooch even when his owner is a cretin.]
President Biden announced on Saturday that his family’s beloved pet German Shepherd Champ passed away.
The president and first lady released a heartbreaking statement saying the 13-year-old dog died “peacefully at home”.
“He was our constant, cherished companion during the last 13 years and was adored by the entire Biden family,” the statement said.
It added: “Even as Champ’s strength waned in his last months, when we came into the room, he would immediately pull himself up, his tail always wagging, and nuzzle us for an ear scratch or a belly rub.
“Wherever we were, he wanted to be, and everything was instantly better when he was next to us.”
The statement goes on to remember the pooch’s younger days, playing with the Biden family at their home in Delaware.
