Lyndon Baines Johnson is one of the biggest dog lovers of all the U.S. Presidents. Johnson was very proud of his dog Yuki's ability to sing before an audience. Ambassador Bruce certainly isn't the only person to ever be treated to a duet with Yuki and President Johnson, but the photograph above documents the point in time when he received the privilege on February 6, 1968.
The following is a recording where Lyndon Baines Johnson explains that dogs have always been his friends. At the end of the recording he shares how he came to receive the last dog he owned named Yuki after his daughter Luci found the dog abandoned and homeless.
