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

Joe Biden

Getting a chance to meet while聽the former VP was in Washington to celebrate the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act,聽the four-month-old Golden Retriever pup鈥檚 own Sydney told聽BuzzFeed, 鈥淎s 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.鈥

She continued, 鈥淎s 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.鈥

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