WASHINGTON – The future first dog will be welcomed to the White House with his own ceremonial inauguration.
Major will be stealing some of the spotlight from his human, president-elect Joe Biden later this month. The Delaware Humane Association is teaming up with Pumpkin Pet Insurance to host the virtual ‘indoguration’ to honor the nation’s first shelter dog to step into the role. Biden adopted the German shepherd from the DHA in 2018.
Now the DHA is calling it the largest virtual party for dogs, saying Major Biden is “barking proof that every dog can live the American dream.”
Major will take his oath of office on Jan. 17 at 3 p.m., just three days before Biden takes his. A minimum donation of $10 is required to join the Zoom event, with proceeds going to supporting the shelter. You can RSVP to the event here.
Though Major is getting a lot of love ahead of his White House move-in, he won’t be the only canine to roam the West Wing. The Bidens also have Champ, another German shepherd who is no stranger to the White House lawns.
