RIP CHAMP






 (CNN) The Bidens announced Saturday that their "beloved" German Shepherd Champ has died.

"Our hearts are heavy today as we let you all know that our beloved German Shepherd, Champ, passed away peacefully at home," President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden said in a statement. "He was our constant, cherished companion during the last 13 years and was adored by the entire Biden family."
 
"Even as Champ's strength waned in his last months, when we came into a room, he would immediately pull himself up, his tail always wagging, and nuzzle us for an ear scratch or a belly rub. Wherever we were, he wanted to be, and everything was instantly better when he was next to us," they said in the statement.
 
The Bidens continued: "He loved nothing more than curling up at our feet in front of a fire at the end of the day, joining us as a comforting presence in meetings, or sunning himself in the White House garden. In his younger days, he was happiest chasing golf balls on the front lawn of the Naval Observatory or racing to catch our grandchildren as they ran around our backyard in Delaware."
 
Champ, they said, had been with the family during their "most joyful moments" and "most grief-stricken days."
"We love our sweet, good boy and will miss him always," the President and first lady said.

Dog Charity Linked to Lara Trump has spent over $2 million at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago

 A dog rescue charity will have spent over $2 million at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort by the end of this weekend, according to HuffPost. Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump is a chairwoman for the Big Dog Ranch Rescue but its president, Lauren Simmons, claims that played no role in the charity’s decision to hold several fundraising events at the resort over the years. 

Between 2014 and 2021, the organization spent $1.9 million at Trump’s Florida club and nearby golf course, and this weekend they will spend an additional estimated $225,000, according to HuffPost. Simmons appears to be a fervent believer of 2020 election fraud conspiracies. “Either we TAKE power back or we will never be free again,” Simmons tweeted Jan. 3. “No more asking nicely.” She didn’t respond to HuffPost’s questions about her support for Trump.
