FURRED, FINNED, FEATH­ERED PRES­I­DENT

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Yes, Amer­i­cans name their pets af­ter pres­i­dents. And yes, there is re­search of sorts to back this up, many from Em­brace Pet In­surance, which went through its records of some 100,000 pet poli­cies to dis­cover this phe­nom­e­non. The most pop­u­lar pres­i­den­tially in­spired name is Lin­coln, fol­lowed by Rea­gan, Tru­man, Carter, Har­ri­son, Roo­sevelt, Kennedy, Nixon, Ford, Fillmore, Cleve­land and Hoover. Three pets, in­ci­den­tally, were named Bi­den, and there was one Clin­ton, and one Obama. “We all know that pets are truly the back­bone to all great things. It’s only fair that we give them credit where credit is due,” the com­pany notes.
