Happy Birthday to Caroline Kennedy (born Nov. 27, 1957), daughter of President John F. Kennedy.
To celebrate, Paws 4 Abigail has selected a quote from Ms. Kennedy for our daily Dog Quote. Here she is remembering Pushinka, who was a gift to the Kennedy family from Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev.
“I remember that dog. It bit. But we couldn’t get rid of it, of course, because, you know. The dog was named Pushinka…. It had puppies too. And there was a contest where people could write in with their names, and actually on my last book tour, I met somebody who had written in and gotten one of the puppies.”
