This comical short is about Fala, the dog owned by Franklin D. Roosevelt. It's told entirely from the perspective of the dog. In it, we follow him on his daily routine around the White House. We also see him meet dignitaries such as Sir Winston Churchill.

Clocking in at about ten minutes, this one is pretty slight stuff and is not really anything much more than a historical curiosity piece now. It was obviously originally intended as a short humorous feature that would make up part of a cinematic programme back in the days when going to the flicks meant much more than just seeing the latest feature film. Newsreels, cartoons, travelogues, B movies and main features all had to be fitted in. And comic short's like Fala: The President's Dog were also common fare. There's not too much to it and from nowadays perspective it's pretty limited but it has a definite charm nevertheless.
