Mike Pence debuts new family pet -- and it has the best name ever


The Pence family arrived in Washington on Monday with a very adorable new family member in tow.

Marlon Bundo the rabbit, whose name is a nod to famed actor Marlon Brando, accompanied the Pences. The family also has two cats, Oreo and Pickle.

The vice president-elect posted a family photo as they traveled from Indiana to Andrews Air Force Base aboard an Air Force 737, which CNN reports will be known as Air Force Two after Pence is sworn in.

Alongside the politico was his daughter Charlotte holding Marlon, as well as Oreo and Pickle snuggling up beside his wife, Karen.

Social media instantly lit up over this unique vice-presidential pet:

The Pences are big animal lovers and also have a pet snake that is reportedly in Mississippi with their son, Michael, a Marine.

The family's 13-year-old beagle, Maverick, tragically passed away shortly before the 2016 election.

After Donald Trump's inauguration, the entire Pence crew will move into the U.S. Naval Observatory, which is the traditional home of the vice president.
