Animal lovers came together online yesterday to celebrate ‘National Best Friends Day’ highlighting the bond between dog and owner.

From dog lovers to celebrity dog owners and public officials, everyone wanted to share a photograph of their special four-legged friend, including the US Senator for Indiana, Dan Coats, who shared this tweet quoting Harry Truman saying “You want a friend in Washington, get a dog.”

The tweet was accompanied by this photo of Senator Coats and his dog, Honey.

It’s not the first time Honey has made an appearance on the Senator’s social media profiles having been pictured visiting Starkey Farms in Brownsburg with her owner in May on Facebook.

Will his advice be heeded as the presidential election kicks into high gear? We know Hillary Clinton’s family has long been associated with a love of dogs and famously owned Buddy, a chocolate Labrador during her husband’s time in office. We can only wonder, but one thing’s for sure – more Honey please Senator Coats!
