It’s National Puppy Day!!!
Here’s six-month-old puppy King Timahoe making his public debut with President Nixon on 1/28/1969.
King Timahoe (aka Tim) was a gift to President Nixon from his staff. Tim was an exuberant pup but, at first, not too popular with Nixon family dogs Vicki and Pasha. Vicki wanted nothing to do with him and Pasha kept barking at him. In time, the three dogs became good pals.
