Nearly all U.S. presidents have kept a pet during their stay at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—and with a crowd of nine dogs, John F. Kennedy was no exception.

The 35th president's pack is the focus of Margaret Reed and Joan LowndsThe Dogs of Camelot: Stories of the Kennedy Canines, which features a number of rare photos and never-before-told stories. (Did you know that before JFK made a decision on the Cuban Missile Crisis, he asked to see his favorite dog, Charlie, a Welsh terrier?)
