On Monday, Jan. 25, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden took to her social media accounts to share some exciting news.

"Champ and Major have joined us in the White House," she wrote along with heart emojis and paw print emojis.

Within an hour of sharing, the pics of the happy German shepherds running across the White House lawn gained over 600,000 likes with followers excited about the update. 

One Instagram user, wrote, "I vote they get their own Instagram account." Another added, "Welcome back doggies to the White House!!! This is what we like to see They look thrilled!!"

The Biden's fostered Major in 2018 from the Delaware Humane Association, who wrote on their Facebook account at the time, "Today is Major's lucky day! Not only did Major find his forever home, but he got adopted by Vice President Joe Biden & Dr. Jill Biden! The Bidens have gotten to know Major while fostering him and are now ready to make the adoption official. Best of luck and thank you for being one of our Friends for life!"

As many may remember, news broke back in November that the White House will also foster a cat, which the internet has already dubbed First Feline.

In fact, while Press Secretary Jen Psaki answered questions in a Twitter video on Jan. 24, she addressed one kitty-specific inquiry.

Someone wrote, "First Feline updates would be greatly appreciated," to which Psaki responded in agreement, "I'm also wondering about the cat because the cat is going to dominate the internet whenever the cat is announced and wherever that cat is found."
