    Description

    Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Dog, Meg, Laundry Bag One of the best known White House pets of all-time has to be President Roosevelt's little dog, Fala. However, at the White House "Meggie" was just as famous. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt used this interesting white laundry bag which has "Laundry, The Mayflower, Washington, D.C." printed on it as well as the word "Meg" in laundry pen to do her dog's private laundry. Accompanying the bag is a long, detailed and signed historical letter on White House stationery from maid Lillian Rogers Parks, author of My Thirty Years Backstairs at the White House, which shares anecdotes about her time in the White House and some of the hijinks that the not so famous dog got into on a daily basis.
