Jack Schlossberg Named His Dog After A President Who Isn’t JFK

A truly adorable duo.

JFK’s grandson Jack Schlossberg is truly ready to take his Tinder pics now that he has the perfect accessory: an adorable dog named Chester. “He looks exactly like [former president] Chester A. Arthur,” Caroline Kennedy’s son told People at the New Frontier Awards at Harvard Law School, where the 24-year-old is a student. This is fun and amusing, though not as fun and amusing as Jason Segel’s character in I Love You Man naming his dog after Egyptian president Anwar Sadat because the dog looks like Anwar Sadat.

“He’s a mix of two different types of dogs, but I don’t remember the exact breed,” Schlossberg explained. Perhaps this is a question he can Google and post the results to Instagram, something he likes to do on his highly entertaining page.

“Gonna name him Fuki or Nutroll or Rabbit or Maestro or Big Data or Richard or maybe Pickle or Angus. He’s my brother,” the outdoor enthusiast joked in July on a picture of himself and his canine bro. Chester was probably the right choice, although a dog named Big Data would be kind of perfect for our current cultural moment.

So: sports, American presidents, brotherly pups. What else does Schlossberg like? Cool dudes! “I am The Rock’s greatest fan,” he told People, “He’s just like the funniest, best guy.” Schlossberg gushes. No argument here. “And what I really love about him is that he is the hardest worker… I identify with that because I think hard work is very, very important, and so I just think he’s the man.” He also likes his hair twin, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, and has posted about him on Insta on a humber of occasions. “He is an inspiring young leader and he just is very endearing,” says Schlossberg. Last Spring, the Trudeau family took in Portuguese water dog Kenzie, so maybe the two men can set up a doggie play-date. And discuss important matters of state or whatever.
