“Friends, meet Bailey. We named him after George Bailey, the community banker in It’s a Wonderful Life — a guy who was decent, determined & saw the best in people,” she wrote. “I always thought the role of GB was written for a Golden Retriever, but Jimmy Stewart did a nice job with it.”

“There's a lot of pain and chaos in the world right now — we decided to bring a little gentleness and normalcy into our lives,” Warren tweeted at the time.
