Fala outlived FDR by seven years, yet the faithful dog was still buried at his master's side in New York.

FDR wasn't the only one to suggest that the media had insulted his dog - in fact, it seems to be a common trope used to distract White House journalists from more serious matters. When a journalist accidentally addressed President Bush's favorite dog, a cocker spaniel named Ranger, by the wrong name during a press conference, the president responded:
The other day our dog Ranger appeared at a press conference, and he was called Millie [by reporters]. He's a strong male dog here, as you can see, and his feelings were slightly hurt.
First Lady Barbara Bush also reportedly had to tell guests not to feed Ranger, because he had become such a boisterous and, at times, over-friendly dog.
