Barbara Bush and Jennifer Pickens “Pets at the White House: 50 Years of Presidents and Their Pets”

It’s probably unlikely that Barbara Bush will be making any book signing appearances for this title, given its nature. However, we thought we would put it out there just in case. Pets and the white house and first ladies. If this piques your interest, then this is the book for you.

This title will be published Sept. 1st of this year and is now available for pre-order.

About the book:

“Pets at the White House provides a spectacular view into one of the most historic homes in the world and all of its four-legged, beaked, and pawed inhabitants – from ponies, puppies, and cats to parakeets, sheep and even an alligator. Interest in presidential pets has risen with the importance, power, and prestige of the American presidency. The American public has an insatiable appetite for stories of everyday life in the White House, and the media obliges with increased coverage of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and the pets that reside there. This book brings it all to life.
With charm, wit, and compelling photographs, author Jennifer Pickens reveals how pets have played an important role in the White House throughout the decades, not only by providing companionship to the Presidents and their families, but also by humanizing and softening their political images. The book starts with the Kennedy family and their menagerie of pets and continues through 10 administrations and more than half of a century to the Obama family and First Dog Bo. Throughout the pages are more than 200 exquisite photographs – images of Presidents with their pets in quiet moments as well as more animated times of play – most of which have never been seen before…”
