  • In this black and white photograph, the Harding’s family pet Airedale terrier, Laddie Boy, is sitting next to his radiotone portrait in silver. The portrait was presented that day to First Lady Florence Kling Harding by Alfred H. Retler. Harding’s presidential campaign slogan was "Return to Normalcy" following the end of World War I, and Laddie Boy was the perfect representation of this shift. He even sat in on meetings and had his own cabinet chair. This photograph is from the Herbert E. French Collection, of the National Photo Company at the Library of Congress, which captured life in Washington, D.C., from the Wilson to the Hoover administrations.

  • This photograph by Abbie Rowe of the National Park Service shows Princess Elizabeth (the future Queen Elizabeth II) of the United Kingdom presenting a mid 19th century trumeau to President Harry Truman and First Lady Bess Truman. It was sent on behalf of her father, King George VI, to commemorate the completion of Truman's White House renovations.

  • In this black and white photograph, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's dog Fala is shown posing on a camera for photographers on his second birthday on the south lawn of the White House. Fala, a Scottish Terrier, was a gift to President Roosevelt from his cousin Margaret “Daisy” Suckley. Fala went to live in the White House on November 10, 1940, and regularly traveled with the President, including trips to Roosevelt’s homes in both Hyde Park, New York and Warm Springs, Georgia. Fala was popular among the American public and frequently received letters from people across the country. In 1943, MGM made a short-subject film relating the World War II home front story from Fala's perspective. The studio made a second installment in 1946 after his master's death that included Fala's tour of Hyde Park, the Roosevelt family estate, and future site of a presidential library.
