There were a LOT of dogs at the Kennedy White House, but Shannon was said to have been the president’s favorite.
The yellow canary, who lived to be about 2 years old, was named Robin because Caroline “likes robins.”
Pushinka, Russian for “Fluffy,” was a puppy of Strelka, a Soviet space dog.
Caroline Kennedy’s pony, Macaroni, was a present from Lyndon Johnson. Macaroni roamed freely around the White House grounds.
