Warren G. Harding (died Aug. 2, 1923)

a 08-02_HardingRemembering some presidential history today with this dog quote, from an Associated Press article the day after the death of President Warren G. Harding (died Aug. 2, 1923):

“There was one member of the White House household today who could not quite comprehend the air of sadness which hung over the Executive Mansion. It was Laddie Boy, President Harding’s Airedale friend and companion. Of late he has been casting an expectant eye and cocking a watchful ear at the motor cars which roll up on the White House drive. For, in his dog sense way, he seems to reason that an automobile took [the Hardings] away, so an automobile must bring them back. White House attachés shook their heads and wondered how they were going to make Laddie Boy understand.”
