America's first Democat put to sleep :(

Socks, America's first,very famous and loved Democ(r)at, was euthanized today at 10 a.m. after months of battling cancer. Socks was a stray adopted by Chelsea when Bill was still Governor of Arkansas. He was born in 1989, so that means he was about 19 or 20 years old. Wow.

While in the White House Socks was given free rein of the presidential residence. He'd show up in the Oval Office, out on the lawn and is most famous for his appearance in the White House press briefing room. Since 2001, Socks had lived with Betty Currie, Bill Clinton's former secretary. Hillary and Bill were known to have visited Socks at Currie's home when in Washington.

Bill and Hillary release a joint statement today: "Socks brought much happiness to Chelsea and us over the years, and enjoyment to kids and cat lovers everywhere. We're grateful for those memories, and we especially want to thank our good friend, Betty Currie, for taking such loving care of Socks for so many years."

I just recently lost a pet. I hope Socks and him are happy together in pet heaven! Love ya, Socks! We'll miss you!
