Today's question: US Presidents often bring pets into the White House, but in 1926 Calvin Coolidge actually had one sent to him instead! The animal was a gift for Coolidge and his family from a constituent in Mississippi and it was intended to be part of Thanksgiving dinner...... but at the last second, the president couldn’t bear the thought of eating it so he kept it as a pet instead. He named it Rebecca and it often napped on his lap by the fire and it could often be seen going for a walk around the White House grounds on a leash. What type of pet did Calvin Coolidge have?
