The Presidents Pets

Presidents Pets

Most all of the presidents in office have had a pet. Some like Calvin Coolidge had way more pets than one. Calvin owned twenty-six pets, not all of them very common, like a pygmy hippo and lion cubs named Tax Deduction and Budget Bureau. When it comes time that these pets pass on, it is said that presidents prefer to have their pets cremated and put into a pet urn instead of burying them. This is because they are not going to stay in presidency forever and if they bury their furry friends, they won’t get to take them with them when they go back to their everyday life.

They can always come back to visit their beloved pets in the white house pet cemetery or at the Presidential Pet Museum, but they can’t take their pets with them once they‘ve been buried. Everyone wants the best for their pets in life and in death, that is why most presidents purchase the best pet urns that they can afford. Pet urns come in many sizes. Big enough that Teddy Roosevelt would have had no problem finding a beautiful pet urn for his Bull Mastiff, Blaze.

The Presidents Pets

President Coolidge would have had troubles finding a pet urn for his hippo, however, because they are not quite big enough to hold a half ton hippo. When it comes to finding the correct size pet urn, it is important that you have one that will hold the correct amount of cubic inches as the weight of your pet. For Teddy Roosevelt’s Bull Mastiff, he would have needed a pet urn that held at least one hundred cubic inches as Bull Mastiffs are large dogs.

One of the most popular types of urns that presidents choose are marble urns. These are the most unobtrusive looking urns that are not only decorative but can hold a lot of ashes without looking like what it is- a pet urn. It has been stated that most urns selected by presidents are green marble. Whether this is because green is a favorite color or it matches the White House decor, that is an unknown fact.
