A German Shepherd dog named King Tut helped to get former president Herbert Hoover elected. Pictured with the candidate, the dog made Hoover appear warm and friendly. The autographed image was sent to thousands of voters. Once in the White House, King Tut remained in the public eye, every night patrolling the White House fences, and became known as "the dog that worried himself to death."
