Presidential Pet Figurine: Millie
- Approximately 1 ½ X 1 ½ inches
- Hand crafted and hand painted
- Not recommended for children under 3 years.
Millie the dog was a gift from George H. W. Bush to his wife Barbara while serving his second term as Vice President. Millie became instantly famous when she moved into the White House after Bush was elected president. Giving birth to six puppies a year into Bush Sr.’s term and publishing the ghostwritten Millie’s Book gained her frequent media attention.
Hand crafted and hand painted, this lovely miniature figurine version of the English Springer Spaniel captures Millie’s likeness. It makes the perfect gift and is a delightful addition to any collection.
The White House has been the home not just to the Presidents and the First Families, but also to all their family pets. Presidential pets have included barnyard animals, exotic birds, bears, alligators, domesticated cats, and many, many dogs. From FDR's Fala and the Bushes' Barney to the Obamas' Bo and Sunny, some of these pets have themselves become household names across America.
