President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden aren’t the only ones who moved into the White House this past week.
Two four legged and very furry pals have packed their collection of doggy toys and scrumptious treats to live in their new home for the next 4 years on Pennsylvania Ave.
Here’s welcoming Major and Champ to the White House!
President Joe Biden’s two German Shepard’s are featured in a brand new kids book appropriately titled, Champ and Major: First Dogs.
The story revolves around the President’s two dogs while also focusing on Champ (who has lived in the White House before), showing his little brother and 3-year-old Major around the big White House.
Written by Joy McCullough and illustrated by Sheyda Abvabi Best, the children’s story follows the two “first dogs” Champ and Major, as they live with their parents in their new home.
“Champ and Major’s dad, Joe Biden, just got a really important job: He’s going to be the new president of the United States!” the book descriptions begins. “Champ is excited to go back to the White House — he got to visit it when his dad was the vice president, before the family adopted Major, and he knows about all the important work that happens there. Major is going to be one of the first rescue dogs to live in the White House, and Champ can’t wait to show his little brother around. Soon, Champ and Major will be in their new home, and they’re going to bring a lot of fun with them!”Champ and Major: First Dogs
According to the author, the book doesn’t only describe a fun story between the two dogs following their dad around the White House, but it also includes the importance of rescuing animals since we all know Major, is a rescue pup!
“Rescue animals give us the chance to exercise compassion and welcome creatures in need of safe, loving homes,” McCullough tells People. “What better place to demonstrate these values for young readers than the president’s home?”Joy McCullough
The 24 page book includes important information and helpful tips in adopting rescue animals and even Vice President Kamala Harris makes an appearance in the new children’s book!
“Make sure you’re a good fit: Many shelters offer the option to foster a dog first, as the Bidens did with Major,” McCullough writes. “Then, if the dog turns out to be a good match for your family, you can adopt. If not, the shelter can find a new home for the dog!”Champ and Major: First Dogs
