D'aww: Eric and Lara Trump Rescue Sick Puppy. Now He's Part of the First Family!
This past week has been a little rough. In case you need catching up, here's a brief refresher: fake Islamophobia, developments in Paul Ryan's Obamacare "solution," the Gorsuch hearing, and a terrorist attack in London. It's time for a change of pace, so ready yourself for all the feels. The best way to lighten the mood? PUPPIES. It's a proven fact. President Trump's son and daughter-in-law recently adopted a sickly beagle. Not to be confused with bagel. Though both elicit feelings of jubilation.
After a few months of care, it didn't take long before said beagle was back in good health. Now he's enjoying life as their new family pet...
Eric and Lara have adopted a stray beagle who was so sick when he first came into a shelter that he had to stay at the vet hospital for a month. Ben the beagle was brought to the San Antonio Animal Care Services in April 2016, so covered with mange that much of his fur was gone, with his raw, sore, pink skin showing through.
When Ben was finally ready to leave, he was picked up by a rescue group. From there, the dog made its lucky way to Eric and Lara Trump... [They] seem quite proud of their new addition, often posting pictures and video of him on social media. Ben has been seen frolicking in front of the couple's mansion and enjoying a play on the beach with beagle brother Charlie.
Ben completely transformed from a sad scrap of a pup to a happy, lively dog.
I'm not crying, you're crying. Kudos to the Trumps for helping out the misfortunate lightly toasted bagel... And giving us a nice story as a breath of fresh air from the regular news.
By the way, you know if the Obamas had done such a thing, it would be wall to wall coverage, from HuffPo to MSNBC, from Slate to Salon, MTV to all the rags at the checkout line which you know you look at, even if it's subtly, stop lying. But because the Trumps did a fine thing, the story got a wee bit buried like a precious bone. Rescuing the puppies should be a bipartisan issue, no?
Now, back to the important stuff...
