    This week saw Joe Biden and Kamala Harris sworn into office as our 46th President and Vice President of the United States.

    ‘This is America’s day, democracy’s day,’ President Biden told the audience of the scaled down Inauguration. ‘At this hour my friends, democracy has prevailed’.

    Celebrations have been erupting across the world, with new hope for what this blue wave could bring.

    Even the Queen got in touch with the new President this week to offer her personal congratulations.

    Today however, it was dog-lovers who rejoiced, as Joe Biden announced that he was making a sweet change to the White House – reintroducing dogs.

    Presidential pets have long been a White House tradition, with Donald Trump being the first President in over a century not to have a pet.

    This week however, dogs are returning to the White House as Joe and Jill moved in with Major and Champ.

    The couple welcomed Champ a month after the 2008 election, following in the Obamas’ footsteps, and Major was adopted by the Bidens two years ago, making history this week as he becomes the first ever shelter dog to live in the White House.

    Huge congratulations to our new President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and of course to Major and Champ for making history!
