Franklin D. Roosevelt was born this week in 1882 in Hyde Park, New York. His memorial on the National Mall, dedicated in 1997, is unique in that it is the only presidential memorial in Washington with a pet. FDR’s Scottish terrier, Fala, is honored for the central part he played in Roosevelt's public image: Fala’s antics were widely reported by the national media and adored by the public. The U.S. Army even made Fala an honorary private for donating a dollar a day to the war effort.

Fala outlived FDR by seven years and was buried near his president in the rose garden of the Roosevelt estate in Hyde Park. To this day, Fala’s statue at the FDR memorial is a perennial favorite of children and adults alike. Make sure to rub his ears!

Three months ago Damai, the National Zoo's Sumatran tiger, gave birth to two cubs. Now that they're old enough, Sukacita and Bandar can be viewed by the public with their mother each day starting at 10am. Our guide, Eric, took some amazing photos of the trio on his way to our office.
