FDR memorably defended his pet in 1944, when Republican newspapers spread a rumor that the dog had been left by mistake on an Aleutian island and then retrieved at great expense to taxpayers. FDR bested his critics with humor. “I don’t resent attacks,” he said, “and my family doesn’t resent attacks, but Fala does resent them. You know, Fala is Scotch, and being a Scottie, as soon as he learned that the Republican fiction writers … had concocted a story that I … had sent a destroyer back to find him … his Scotch soul was furious. He has not been the same dog since.” Quote found using Credo Reference database.
