Randy Travis’s heartfelt Facebook post bids adieu to a beloved friend.Champ, the beloved German Shepherd who had been a beloved member of the Biden family since 2008, passed away on Saturday, according to President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden. The Bidens are mourning the loss of Champ. The Bidens expressed their sorrow over Champ’s unexpected passing, who did so peacefully at their Wilmington, Delaware home. As they think back on the 13 years of loyal companionship and affection they shared with their beloved German Shepherd, this news has left their hearts aching.
A Cherished Friend
Throughout his life, Champ brought the Bidens happiness and solace. He enjoyed sitting at their feet in front of a warm fire, offering comfort during discussions, and soaking up the sun in the White House garden. Champ made the family happy and made them laugh, whether he was chasing golf balls on the field or rushing around after their grandchildren in their Delaware backyard.
Shortly after Joe Biden was selected as the Vice President-elect in December 2008, the Biden family welcomed Champ into their lives. Champ, which was given that name in honour of Joe Biden’s father, came to represent fortitude and resiliency. Champ was a dependable friend who provided unflinching support and unconditional affection at both their happiest moments and their most difficult times.
An enduring relationship
The Bidens were aware of the symptoms of Champ’s deteriorating health as a result of his elderly age. When he was only a month old, they remembered the day they bought him from a breeder in Spring City, Pennsylvania, and took him home. When Joe Biden and Barack Obama won the election, Jill Biden kept her pledge to have a puppy, and Champ became a beloved member of their family.
Relationship and New Arrival
Through the Delaware Humane Association, the Bidens added Major, a 3-year-old German Shepherd puppy, to their growing animal family in November 2018. Together, they became the charming faces of Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign because Major kept Champ occupied and active. Less than a week after his inauguration, Biden invited Champ and Major to the White House, continuing a long-standing ritual.
A Special Memory
The Biden family is still grieving over Champ’s loss. They recall him with affection for his bouncing tail, his willingness for cuddles and belly rubs, and his constant presence even as his strength dwindled in his final months. They found refuge in his reassuring demeanour and unfailing commitment during both their best and worst times. As a beloved member of their family, Champ will always have a special place in their hearts.
The Bidens are saddened by the loss of Champ, their cherished German Shepherd, who was a continuous source of love, joy, and company for the past 13 years. They find comfort in the memories of his unshakable loyalty and the joy he brought into their lives while they mourn the loss of this cherished family member. The Bidens will cherish Champ’s memory always.
