Hello, and welcome to your Wednesday afternoon moment of zen.
Former vice president and presidential-level heartthrob Joe Biden (don’t @ us) met a 4-month-old Golden Retriever named Biden and for a moment, the entire world stopped spinning, and everything was right again.
Biden, the world’s most adorable dog, made an early trip to the Capitol on Wednesday in hopes of catching a glimpse of the former VP – there to celebrate the seventh anniversary of the Affordable Care Act.
As you can imagine based on this face, human Biden noticed the puppy right away.
As soon as he saw the dog during the actual speech, he pointed at the dog, tapped his friend and then started like cracking up,” Sydney, Bidens owner, told BuzzFeed News. “Right towards the end, I, like, kind of signaled him, and he… gave me a wink to come over.
As soon as I told him his name was Biden, he started kissing the dog, which is like exactly what I expected Biden would do, Sydney said, noting that “As soon as I told him, his face lit up.
I named the dog Biden just because he is probably my favorite politician and favorite elected official, Sydney revealed.
I really respect Joe Biden even though I dont necessarily align with him politically.
A blissful moment for us all.
