Pushinka: The Fictionalized Story of John F. Kennedy’s Dog is now available for order on Amazon!
In 1961, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev sent Jacqueline Kennedy a gift: a fluffy white puppy with a tiny passport. Pushinka became a beloved part of the Kennedy family, witnessing history and developing a romance with JFK’s dog, Charlie. This book gives readers the history of Camelot from a dog’s-eye-view!
The POTUS Pets series strives to illuminate presidential history while celebrating the animals America’s leaders loved.
Pushinka was written by our Historian-in-residence Andrew Hager and illustrated by Nora Sawyer.
