The Reagans and Bushes at the U.S. Naval Observatory

This photograph was taken on February 12, 1981, during a visit by President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan to the vice president's residence at the United States Naval Observatory. Vice President George H. W. Bush and Second Lady Barbara Bush invited the president and first lady to their residence for an informal dinner. Here, President Reagan plays with the Bushes' dog, C. Fred, while Mrs. Reagan, Vice President Bush, and Mrs. Bush look on. In 1984, Mrs. Bush wrote a book documenting her husband's career from the springer spaniel's perspective, titled "C. Fred's Story."
