Press Release

Washington, DC –Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-38) released the following statement today in memory of her beloved dog Chavo:


It is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to the furriest and most loyal member of my team. With his soulful brown eyes and mellow demeanor, Chavo made quick friends in Washington.


He was always willing to greet visitors from the comfort of his office couch and he had the uncanny ability to put everyone who walked through my office door at ease with a simple wag of his tail.  


It was President Truman who said, ‘If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.’ I’m going to miss my best friend. “


Congresswoman Sánchez adopted Chavo in 2005 from an animal shelter in Pennsylvania. He was a regular in her Washington, DC office and the longest serving member of Team Sánchez.
