The Fala Biography - FDR Presidential Library & Museum
The Fala was delivered to the President of Mrs. Augustus G. Kellog from Westport, Connecticut by Franklin Roosevelt's Cousine Margaret "Daisy" Suckley on April 7, 1940. He was nicknamed Fala. Daisy Fala used to teach Fala how to act and do things before Fala went to the White House. On November 10, 1940, Fala went to the White House in Washington, DC.
But also in the homes in Hyde Park and Warm Springs, Georgia, times were spen. In Hyde Park, Fala often used FDR's Ford that FDR controlled by hands because of poliomyelitis. Fala had a bones raised on the president's bed and breakfasts every mornings.
It was Fala who got a full supper every evening. Fala's been begging for lunch from White House personnel all the time. And the president told the personnel not to give him any additional fodder. It was Fala's pleasure to journey with the President on long and brief journeys by rail, road or canoe. Almost a permanent attendant of the president, Fala encountered many celebrity guests and amused them with the secrets he had learnt as a pup.
At the Atlantic Charter Conference in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland in August 1941, Fala was with the President and Prime Minister Winston Churchill of England. The following September, and again in April 1943, Fala made inspections of defence facilities and paid a visit to the President of Mexico, President Camacho.
Later, in August and then again in September 1944, he attended President Roosevelt at the conferences in Quebec. Fala was on a voyage to the Aleuts with the president in 1944. Somebody began a rumour that Fala was unintentionally abandoned on one of the island, and that the Navy had to return a boat to get him back.
In the 1944 Presidency of the Republic, the Republicans reproached the President for having spent billions of taxpayers' money to get Fala back. In an interview with Teamsters Union, the president replied to the assault in his renowned "Fala speech". Fala, Roosevelt's little friend, said: "These political republicans were not satisfied with attacking me, my woman or my family.
Not satisfied, they now contain my little Fala. Of course I don't blame assaults, and my folks don't blame them. But Fala blames them. "The president was defending his little puppy against the aggression. Though history of being abandoned on the Aleutian Islands was wrong, Fala once caused problems on the Tuscalosa in the West Indies.
The Fala created excitement by quickly walking along the line and tickeling his toes. And the president liked oceans, and so did Fala. Fala once rediscovered a new ploy when the President was on a Florida coastal angling expedition. For Fala it seemed so much enjoyment that he began to turn like the fish: and he did it for several acres.
Fala was so loved in the White House that he got several thousand messages from humans and beasts all over the world. One time Fala was chasing a stinker, and the event was very uncomfortable for everyone concerned. He called Fala names because he did not act with more intellect and worth.
Two films about Fala were shot in the 1940' s. and the other concentrated on his Hyde Park lifestyle. President Roosevelt passed away in April 1945 in Warm Springs, Georgia. It was Fala who took part in the burial, but seemed to be without his loved one. to Val-Kill, where he hunted and played with snakes and pussyflies.
Finally, Mrs. Roosevelt took Fala's grandchild Tamas McFala to Val-Kill to stay there and be Fala's schoolmate. In short, it was a relaxing retreat from his day at the foot of President Roosevelt in the limelight of Washington. Fala died on 5 April 1952 and was entombed in the rose garden near the sundial near the tombs of President and Mrs Roosevelt on his 12th anniversary on 7 April 1952.
