Presidential Pet Museum

There is so much in the press about which pet the new President will choose, we thought it would be interesting to see all of the past Presidential Pets.

At you can see all of the White House Pets, all the way back to our very first President George Washington 1789-1707.

You might be surprised because it was not only cats & dogs that have had the honor of being Presidential Pets.

Snow on the Ocean Front - Shadow's Adventure

On January 21, 2009 the snow began to fall on the Historic Beaches of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Atlantic Ocean pounded the coastline as if applauding the snows arrival. Shadow, a 1 year old spayed Black Lab, just knew something was up & couldn't wait to get outside & explore. Shadow lives on the ocean front of Nags Head, NC and has been a resident for 1 year. Shadow is an only pet but her human Mom & Dad sometimes take her to see her real sisters Kona & Kokko & their human Mom’s & Dad’s. As the snow fell on Shadow's nose and frost bit her little toes, her Dad took photographs to preserve Shadow's adventure. A special thank you goes out to Shadow & her human Mom & Dad (Dr. & Mrs. Anthony) for sharing Shadow’s adventure in the snow. Photos by Dr. Anthony.
