Commander Biden has officially started his duties as a First Pup in time for the holidays, joining the President and First Lady in offering up holiday cheer to service members this Christmas.
It’s been less than a week since Commander Biden joined the White House as the latest member of the First family and since then, it seems that the pup has quickly gotten to work. But perhaps his biggest role to date involved joining President Biden and the First Lady in wishing service members a Merry Christmas and happy holidays.
In pictures from the event, we can see Commander laying down on the couch behind his parents. Sometimes his head popping up over the back of the couch, to remind us all that he was there.
According to the NY Post, however, it seems that “the 16-week-old pup squirmed and tussled between the president and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden as they used their first Christmas Day in office to express season’s greetings and to thank them for their service.”

All things considered, especially since Commander is truly a puppy, this was a great first official outing for the First Pup. Even with his apparent squirminess, he did his duty to help bring smiles and holiday cheer to others.
And according to The Oval Pawffice‘s post about this event,
"Being First Pup means I have a furry busy schedule now, those tennis balls won’t fetch themselves. But greeting the military and thanking them fur their service is a pawority to me and my family."
Commander also pointed out that, “As you can see, I was a furry good boy throughout the video call, resting my head on the pillow and getting petted by mom.”
We would have to agree that Commander was in fact a very good boy in his first official public engagement as a White House dog.
