The current Irish President, Michael D. Higgins, is one of the most well-loved presidents, who won his second election term with a landslide victory of 822,566 first preference votes.
And, while there are multiple reasons for why he is favoured by the people, we think that Bród and Síoda also play a small but significant role in earning him people’s love. We know they’ve earned him our love.
As you may have guessed by now, Bród and Síoda are Higgins’ two Bernese mountain dogs who literally never leave his side. And these photos are the adorable proof of that:

They don’t photoʙᴏᴍʙ. Thay make a photo ‘da ʙᴏᴍʙ!’.
Rule 1 of being amazing doggo: protect my hooman at all costs.

Family photos are the best.
