Let’s see, the dogs’ names were HIM and HER. Or was that one in color the later HO-CHI-HIM?

Didn’t think I could remember that far back, did you?

Good job!

Here’s a nice link from the LBJ library about the dogs. I don’t remember all of them but Yuki sounded familiar.

Apparently Joe Dolan, an aide to Bobby Kennedy, hated LBJ and like to needle him so he called Him “Ho-Chi-Him,” but LBJ didn’t like it. In fact, the White House press office sent Dolan a note about it. I didn’t know about that. I looked it up. In private, Dolan referred to LBJ as “that son of a bitch.” A lot of people agreed.

A relative of mine was a cop, and one time when LBJ came to town to make a speech, he was totally hammered and in no condition to do the speech. They filled him up with coffee and made several cops take LBJ into a shower and give him a cold shower. He was not happy and had a few choice words, but they held on to him to get him fully awake. He eventually snapped out of it and the speech went OK.
