An aide to Rep. David B. McKinley, R-W.Va., put the word out via an internal listserv that the turned-around pooch — which staff believes to be a French bulldog — randomly wandered into Cannon 412 a bit ago.  

No word on what the four-legged visitor has been up to since making itself at home in McKinley’s office. Although we suspect office workers are enjoying the unscheduled interruption.  

Update 1:30 p.m.: Multiples sources have reached out to HOH to say the mystery guest in McKinley’s office looks more like a Boston Terrier than a French Bulldog . Given our limited grasp of the universe of small dog breeds, HOH will defer to the armchair veterinarians out there.
