Remembering presidential pets past
With all the talk surrounding the Obamas' future pet (the discussion even made it into the president-elect's first press conference), it's only natural to take a look back at presidential pets of yesteryear.
With that in mind, we'd like to draw your attention to a photo gallery displayed on Latimes.com today. It's chock-full of all your favorites (Millie, anyone?) and lesser-known characters, including Benjamin Harrison's pet goat, Old Whiskers. (Yes, seriously!)
Above, Lyndon B. Johnson lifts one of his two beagles, Him & Her, by the ears (which created quite a stir at the time).
