We recently wrote about the “Presidential Dogs” exhibition, which will be on display through January 2021 at The AKC Museum of the Dog in New York City.

If you can’t make it in person, you might want to do what we did, which is take advantage of the museum’s virtual tour.

For a suggested $1 donation, you will receive a link the approximately 17-minute tour video, which includes both a look at a presidential dog-related artwork as well as a great deal of fascinating history about White House dogs.

We had no idea, for example, the extent to which dogs belonging to presidents have made news and history over the years, including one who released an album, one who both wrote a book and was named Ugliest Dog by a newspaper (with apologies and dog biscuits later offered), and one who spent his post-White House days getting picked up by police for running loose.

If you love dogs and history, you will likely enjoy this short, but very informative virtual tour. To donate and get the link to the tour, click here.
