Fact of the Day: Roosevelt Fala

During part of his presidency, Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a Scottish terrier named Fala. One of the most popular pets of any president, Fala followed his master almost everywhere. When FDR died, a few noticed Fala having erratic behavior. Fala eventually bonded to the widowed Eleanor Roosevelt and died in 1952.

There is a wonderful memorial to FDR in Washington, DC, and Fala is there with FDR.
