Presidential Pooch – Grits, the Impeached First Dog
After all these years, it still remains a mystery. Why was First Dog, Grits Carter impeached and replace by of all things a Siamese cat named, Misty Malarki Ying Yang.
The dog had been a gift to young Amy Carter from her teacher, but soon after a meeting recorded in the Presidential diary on June 8th, 1977, the dog was abruptly returned to Amy’s teacher. What happened in that meeting? In attendance were, President Jimmy Carter, his daughter Amy, Mr Herbert Ford, a respected dog handler, Mrs. Herbert Ford and the infamous Grits. All we know is that soon after this meeting, Grits was impeached.
Did he chew the President’s shoes instead of his dog chews, or did he just stink up the place? Seems unfair…. We’ve all see more “stink” in the White House from the Presidents that should have caused impeachment then this cute pooch could ever produce.
