Some elected officials have buildings and streets named in their honor. Joe Biden has a golden retriever puppy. While visiting Washington D.C., human Biden met his canine counterpart and even snapped a few photos.
“I named the dog Biden just because he is probably my favorite politician and favorite elected official,” Sydney, Biden’s owner, tells BuzzFeed News. “I really respect Joe Biden even though I don’t necessarily align with him politically.”
Sydney says that the former veep was the person most excited about the dog, adding "as soon as I told him, his face lit up.” The pair snapped a few photos and the puppy gave Joe some kisses as a goodbye.
