Neither shattering dismissals nor scandals. As we approach the 50-day mark, one thing is clear: Joe Biden offers the spectacle of a peaceful presidency. However, a member of the new team does talk about him, Major, a young and fiery German Shepherd.
Monday, he reacted strongly to someone “he did not know”, causing, according to the carefully calibrated communication from the White House, a “slight injury”. In the process, he was returned, along with his companion Champ, to Wilmington, the president’s stronghold in Delaware.
The exile should only be temporary, however, and the two dogs should quickly find their way back to the vast lawns of their prestigious address at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with the Washington Monument as a backdrop.
Asked Tuesday, Jen Psaki, spokeswoman for the White House, stressed that Champ and Major “continued to acclimatize” to their new environment and insisted on one point: they are an integral part “of the Biden family”.

“They will be back soon,” she said.
Arrived at the White House a few days after Joe and Jill, Major, 3, and Champ, ten years his senior, quickly became famous, especially as Donald Trump did not hide his lack of interest in dogs.
Major had already been talked about at the end of November when Joe Biden, already elected, but not yet president, had broken his foot while playing with him.
The first dog from a shelter to settle at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he was adopted by the Biden in late 2018.
“We asked the vet, ‘What can we do to keep Champ in good shape?’ He told us: “Take a young dog”, “Joe Biden said a few weeks ago.
But in an interview with NBC, First Lady Jill Biden explained that adjusting to presidential life – and some form of fame – was not straightforward.
“We have an old dog and a very young dog,” she said.
“They have to take the elevator, which they are not used to. They must go out on the south lawn with a lot of people watching them … “
Access to the Oval Office
“I might be a little biased, but I think Champ and Major would make great First Dogs!” During the campaign, Joe Biden regularly staged his two German Shepherds.
And since coming to power, he has continued in the same vein, especially posting photos where they are seen in the Oval Office during a meeting with his advisers.
He also posed with his two dogs in front of the famous “Resolute desk”, supporting caption: “Few people have access to the Oval Office. I’m happy to report that these two are on the list. ”
The 46e President of history is part of a long tradition: for more than a century, all the tenants of the White House have, at one time or another, had a dog.
With one exception: Donald Trump.
Faced with repeated questions on this theme, he ended up raising the subject himself during a campaign meeting in El Paso, Texas, in early 2019. Explanation put forward by the stormy billionaire? Too much workload that did not allow him to consider such a hypothesis.
“Honestly, I wouldn’t mind having one, but I don’t have the time.”
I hope you are in health and well.
