The family also adopted a gray tabby kitten named Hazel. The Pences spent the weekend in Indianapolis and brought their new pets to Washington, D.C., for the first time when the family returned to the vice president’s residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory.

In a post on Instagram, second daughter Charlotte Pence noted that the addition of Hazel and Harley comes in the wake of the family’s recent loss of their cat, Oreo.

“(And) with loss, comes new life,” she wrote. “Welcome to our family, Harley and Hazel! And happy Father's Day to the best dad who deserves a surprise puppy and so much more.”

Harley and Hazel join the Pences’ other cat, Pickle; a rabbit, Marlon Bundo; and the recent addition of a beehive at the Naval Observatory.
