Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Checkers/Dogs in Politics Day

This day is a special celebration honoring the “first dogs” of the United States. Throughout history, many presidents and first ladies have brought their beloved pets into the office with them, and many dogs have held the title of first dog within the U.S. government.

The date commemorates the famous ‘checkers‘ speech made by Richard M. Nixon in 1952 after he received an adorable Cocker Spaniel as he sought election in 1952.

Almost every president has brought a dog into the White House, and dogs are known for their companionship and comforting abilities to their owners. Celebrate your dog today, and all the dogs of the world! Visit your local animal shelter or stop at PetSmart to grab a new chew toy for your beloved friend.
