White House Wednesday | Center Table Featuring a Carved Dog

Happy #WhiteHouseWednesday and National Dog Day! This table, which was used by Jefferson Davis in the White House of the Confederacy, is adorned with a carved setter dog on the stretchers between the legs. Today the table is on display in the Dining Room, and the little dog watches visitors as they enter the Parlor. Say “hi” to the dog on your next tour of the house.
