Jeb Bush lost the rights to that exclamation point a long time ago, so he probably won’t mind if it goes to the newest addition to the Bush clan, who made his Twitter debut Monday. Introducing Freddy!

Bush wrote on Facebook:

Laura W. Bush and I are thrilled to introduce the newest member of our family, Freddy Bush. We visited the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center last Tuesday to thank them for their great work – and came home with a puppy. We already love him, and even our cats Bob and Bernadette are finding Freddy’s charm futile to resist. If you could use a little extra joy in your life, consider adopting a pet from an animal shelter or rescue group.

A hardcore few are refusing to let even a photo of an adopted puppy keep them from fuming about politics, but we’re going to ignore them and focus instead on this beautiful dog.

That’s progress.
