German shepherds Champ and Major Biden will share a single account, but neither is whining about it.
“We are the First Dogs of the USA, Champ and Major Biden,” their Twitter profile said. “You can call us #DOTUS. We love nom noms, snuggles and we can’t wait to explore the WH!”
Early tweets feature to-die-for photos and awful dog puns, like “pawsidential,” “pawsitive” and “pawblic.” (The pooches refer to Joe Biden as “Dad.”) They also gave a woof-out to supportive “doggos” that stood by the humans who fought for Biden (Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
As of Sunday night, the dogs had already attracted nearly 64,000 followers. They mostly followed politicians and media sites.
No surprise, countless pets introduced themselves in tweets and congratulated the whole family on the big victory:
🐾 Hello America! Hello world! It’s us, Champ and Major. We are the Bidens’ family puppers and First Dogs Elect(s) of USA. We want to thank you all for your suppawrt by sharing our pawsidential adventures here! Woof! Woof! 🐶🇺🇸🐕 pic.twitter.com/J46aiXKVFW

🐾 We’re so proud of our dad @JoeBiden, the first ever presidential candidate to receive 75 million votes. But Major will be setting a record of his own as he’s the first ever rescue pupper to live in the WH. We’re gonna play all day & receive countless treats! #DOTUS#FirstDogspic.twitter.com/o1Hsr7nZ8e
