Sad News! It May Be Time To Say 'So Long, Socks'
Socks, adopted by the Clintons while Bill was still governor of Arkansas, gained a lot of media attention throughout the years as a subject of various books, a guest star in the 2002 Little Rock Christmas parade and even the topic of discussion on an episode of Murphy Brown. Though he lost some thunder when the Clintons adopted their Labrador retriever, Buddy, Linda Kulman, who ghostwrote Dear Socks, Dear Buddy: Kids's Letters To First Pets, tells U.S. News & World Report, "[Socks] was nothing but a gentleman. He was elegant and a perfect resident of the White House...he won't soon be replaced."
Socks continues to live with Currie's family in southern Maryland. Our thoughts are with him! Leave your well-wishes for Socks and those who love him in the comments below.
