What was the rather appropriate name of Jimmy Carter's dog during his stint in the White House?

Answer:

GRITS

A southern gentleman to the core, Jimmy Carter loved his grits. After Carter and his family moved into the White House in 1977, his daughter Amy Carter’s teacher gave the 9-year-old a Border collie mix. The dog, who was born on the same day Jimmy Carter won the presidential election, was named Grits in honor of the Carter family’s Southern roots. Grits’ arrival at the White House was recorded in the presidential diary on June 8, 1977. Some sources report that Grits had a few behavior problems, including soiling the White House carpet — not to mention that Grits didn’t get along with the Carters’ cat, Misty Malarky Ying Yang.
