Golden Brodie sniffs out the Gingerbread White House History

There’s a dog bone cache of rich tidbits…history snippets… about the White House that is simply fascinating.  Take for instance, the baking & construction of the gingerbread White House…it’s been a long-standing tradition since the 1970’s…and through the years the house keeps increasing in square footage. Each year White House chef’s at Christmastime, prepare a ginger model of the “people’s house” for the touring public to see and do the ooh-awh moment.  It’s a grand tradition.

Now I would love to wrap my dog lips around a piece of that sweet creation, but dogs really have to be careful with the ginger intake. Dang, there are so many things from the peeps world that are limiting for dogs.  I’m requesting with a golden tone…some homemade dog biscuits please…and thank you.

So…going forward…light the golden flames of joy in your heart, make some cookies and remember:

“Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart. ”
Washington Irving

  1. That’s a grand gingerbread house! Those white house chef’s are really talented! Sorry there are so many things that you and Tippy can’t have that us peeps love. However, you get things that we don’t get- like bones to chew on. 😉 Wishing you and yours a great Christmas season.
