789Re: [tr-m] TR's Pets
- Feb 6, 2004TR's family had many, many pets, and there is no list available of all of
them. There were many dogs, mostly mongrels. Names included Jack, Skip, Boz,
Jesse. There were guinea pigs, some named after clergy friends of the
family. Alice had a green snake named Emily Spinach. There was a macaw at
one point. There was also for a time a bear cub named Jonathan Edwards,
after the Puritan divine to whom Mrs. Roosevelt was related. There were also
the horses, including ponies. Then there was the pet badger Josiah.
