Presidential Pets - the Ponies, Birds, Raccoons and Other Animals of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave

We're all familiar with Bo Obama, the White House's current First Pet, but animals have found a home at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for well more than a century.

The White House Blog has put together a wonderful photo series featuring some of the animals who've lived in the presidential residence. From John F. Kennedy's pony named Macaroni, to First Lady Grace Coolidge's raccoon Rebecca to President George H.W. Bush's dog Millie and her puppies, you're sure to find a White House pet that makes you smile.

The article features several slide shows you can click through, but if you're all about Bo, we completely understand. We also guarantee the photos will not disappoint.
