Gravesite of Nixon's Dog

3300 Beltagh Ave, Wantagh, New York 11793 USA

“burial place of good ol' Checkers”

Folk Animal Figure. He became famous in 1952 when his owner, Richard Nixon spoke fondly of him in a speech to the nation. Then-VP candidate Nixon was accused of setting up a secret slush fund. Nixon appeared on television and said the only gift he'd received from his political cronies was Checkers. His children loved that dog, Nixon said, and he wasn't going to give it back--even if it was a crime. Nixon went on to become Vice President under Eisenhower, and the rest is history.
