Champ and Major have made themselves right at home in the Oval Office.
President Joe Biden had a pair of furry protectors in the White House’s inner sanctum in a photo shared on Instagram Monday night by White House photographer Adam Schultz.
The photo shows a smiling Biden in the Oval Office with the latest presidential pets, German shepherds named Major and Champ, whom the president and first lady Jill Biden brought to the White House after the dogs had been part of their family for years.
The dogs aren’t only just resting and relaxing on the Oval Office rug, they’re also observing meetings. The White House Flickr account shared a shot of Champ taking some mental notes as Biden met with senior advisers on Feb. 9.
Champ has been with the Biden family for more than a decade since being bought from a breeder before Biden became vice president under President Barack Obama. The dog’s name comes from a nickname that Biden’s father used to have for him while Biden was growing up.
