While former Vice President Joe Biden moves on from the White House, there’s someone who’s not about to forget about him any time soon. And when we say “someone,” we happen to mean an adorable little puppy who shares the same name.

Joe Biden

Getting a chance to meet while the former VP was in Washington to celebrate the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, the four-month-old Golden Retriever pup’s own Sydney told BuzzFeed, “As soon as [human Joe Biden] saw the dog during the actual speech, he pointed at the dog, tapped his friend and then started like cracking up. Right towards the end, I, like, kind of signaled him, and he, like, gave me a wink to come over.”

She continued, “As soon as I told him his name was Biden, he started kissing the dog, which is like exactly what I expected Biden would do. As soon as I told him, his face lit up.”

And while it’s obvious that human Joe Biden was loving his name-twin, puppy Biden was apparently loving his namesake just as much…

Cute! Cute! CUTE!
