Secretary of State John Kerry brought a special guest to a Take Your Children to Work Day event at the State Department today: his one-year-old puppy, Ben (named after Benjamin Franklin).

Ben, who is also on Twitter at @DiploMutt, was not very interested in what his human had to say – he was very boisterous, jumping around and chewing on his leash.

Kerry joked that because his daughters are grown with children of their own, Ben was the closest thing to an actual child that he could bring along.
