We couldn't end without mentioning one of the best, Laddie Boy!

Let’s meet the famous Laddie Boy, who was the celebrity Airedale Terrier, which belonged to Warren and Florence Harding.
Laddie Boy was the first celebrity Presidential animal. He made it into many news stories and magazines.

Laddie never missed an opportunity to be by President Hardings side, from brining the President the newspaper, enjoying some golf, and attending important cabinet meetings, he was always loyal and honest. Laddie boy was a true representation of loyalty and honesty, and these were virtues of President Harding.

Be sure to come check out our Laddie Boy Mystery Club at the Harding Presidential Sites! We need detectives to help Laddie Boy solve mysteries of the past! You will be able to use black lights to solve hidden riddles, use magnifying glasses for getting an up close look at some mysterious prints, and document your finding in your very own TOP SECRET case file! Are you up for the challenge? Stop by soon to see us.

"If you can only have the realization that you are helping to establish a more kindly consideration of the animal life of which we are a part and you can impress your audiences with the beauty of the friendship of dogs for human associates who treat them becomingly, and instill in human lives some of the honesty and fidelity which characterizes the lives we dogs live, you will find a compensation in the good you have done which will surpass any other experience in your life."

-Laddie Boy, 1921 newspaper interview
(Actually written by President Harding)
