First Lady Jill Biden is highlighting herself and President Joe Biden’s lovable dogs Champ and Major in a new public service announcement for Puppy Bowl XVII.
Puppy Bowl XVII will air on Discovery + on February 7, and in the public service announcement, Biden emphasizes the importance of wearing masks amid the coronavirus pandemic, even when people are walking their dogs. Biden filmed the public service announcement at the White House with Champ and Major.
“For many of us during this pandemic, our pets have been a source of joy and comfort, and maybe a bark or two on video conferencing,” says Biden. “The unconditional love of a dog is one of the most beautiful things on Earth and we owe it to them to keep us healthy. So please keep wearing their masks even when walking your dog.”
Major, who was adopted by the Bidens in 2018 from the Delaware Humane Association in Wilmington, is actually a mascot that makes history. He is the first rescue dog to live in the White House.
