Everybody’s favourite Democrat with his Scottie

The Scottish Terrier and Dog News doesn’t want to be accused of partisanship for its coverage of the John Edwards sex scandal so we hereby bring you — courtesy of Time magazine — this wonderful picture, that we had never seen before, of FDR with Fala. Click here to see it in its fullsize glory. According to Time: “Roosevelt’s Scottish Terrier, starred in a movie, was named an honorary Army private and had his own press secretary.”

The photo essay of Presidential First Dogs has 15 more equally great pictures, many of which are vintage.
