Irish President, Michael D. Higgins, is one of the most loved and endorsed politicians who won his second term election with 822,566 first preference votes.
Although there are many reasons to like him, his two adorable dogs Bród and Síoda (meaning Shadow), play an important role in gaining the people’s favorable attitudes.
The President’s two Bernese mountain dogs are inseparable from their human companion, and Higgins himself makes sure that they can always be by his side. The photos and videos that follow illustrate the strong bond between them:
1. Here, Bród interrupts an event with the Royals to ask for a belly rub From Higgins.
