Fala At 79
FDR and Fala
     Apropos of “Canines at CNS,” this week we salute U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s dog, Fala, a Scottish Terrier.
     Fala was born April 7,1940.
     One of the most famous presidential pets, Fala was taken many places, including aboard the Pan Am B314 Clipper that transported FDR to the famous Casablanca meeting with Joseph Stalin and Winston Churchill held at the Anfa Hotel in Casablanca, French Morocco from January 14-24, 1943.
     Given to the Roosevelts by a cousin, Fala knew how to perform tricks; the dog and his White House antics were mentioned frequently by the media and often referenced by Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor.
     Fala survived Roosevelt by seven years and is buried near FDR at the Roosevelt home in Hyde Park that also serves as The Roosevelt Presidential Library.
     The FDR Presidential Library was the first presidential library in the U.S., and today is very active with events all year long.
     FDR Library for 2019 is offering “Pet Membership”.
For USD$35 you get a one-year admission to the FDR Library, plus a special “Fala kerchief” to wear when you bring your pet to the “Annual Dog Walk” in late June.
