Joe Biden says “goodbye” to Champ. The President of the United States announced the death of his German Shepherd on Twitter by posting a long message accompanied by a photo of his faithful traveling companion. Champ was 13 years old. “Our hearts are heavy today to announce that our dear German Shepherd died peacefully at home. He has been our beloved companion for 13 years and was loved by the whole Biden family. Even though the energy of Field gradually diminished, when we entered a room, he immediately stood up, always wagged his tail, and stroked our noses to get our caresses on the ear or stomach, “writes Joe Biden.
“As a youth he was happiest chasing golf balls on the Naval Observatory lawn or running to catch our grandchildren as they played in our backyard in Delaware. In our happiest times and in our saddest days he was there with us, sensitive to all our unexpressed feelings and emotions. We love our nice ‘boy’ and he will always be missed “, we can still read. Joe and Jill Biden can count on the support of their other dog, Major, to wipe away their tears and drown their sorrows.

The return of animals to the White House
Joe Biden’s arrival at the White House marked the return of pets. Indeed, during his tenure, Donald Trump did not have a pet. Four before, it’s Barack and Michelle Obama who owned Bo and Sunny, two Portuguese water dogs.
