For those of you who closely followed the second Bush’s presidency, you’ll recognize his cute pup Barney. The dog was always by his side and was an adorable mascot at the White House. Now, many years later and Barney up in Dog Heaven, the former president has retired with his wife Laura and their latest addition to the fam, Freddy.
George W adopted the pup last fall from the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in his beloved state of Texas.
Since then, Freddy has become W’s trusted sidekick. Laura took to Instagram this month to share a photo of the pair for George’s birthday. I mean come on, look at that smile.
That’s a happy American if I’ve ever seen one. Thankfully, these aren’t the only photos of Freddy that have surfaced on the internet. Thanks to Laura’s Instagram (@laurawbush) we can keep up with both the pup and his presidential owner. In the meantime, take a look at this cute face.
