Just look at this grim bastard.
This here is North Bend, Ohio native and, sandwiched between two terms by Grover Cleveland, the 23rd President of the United States.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Yea, Ohio’s had a bunch of presidents *yawn*”, but that’s not why we’re looking at him. Nor are we going to talk about his politics, which I’m sure made sense in the late 1800’s. No, we’re here to talk about his pet ownership. Really.
As you know, recent presidents have been happy to have a dog or a cat in the Whitehouse, with names like “Bo” or “Spot” or “Socks” or “Millie”.
Benjamin Harrison had opossums named “Mr. Reciprocity” and “Mr. Protection”.
How fucking awesome is that?
Imagine showing up to the White House and being greeted by something like this:

Rumor has it, they did not get along, which isn’t surprising, but somehow fitting.
He also had a collie named “Dash” and a goat named “Whiskers”, but who cares? There’s no competing with Mr. Reciprocity and Mr. Protection.
