Beloved Dog of JFK Jr. is Alive and Well

The beloved black-and white mutt owned by John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette is reportedly alive and well.

In a twist of fate, the dog, named Friday, who apparently almost always accompanied the couple on flights, didn't board the ill-fated plane last Friday. He is now reportedly living with a Kennedy family member in Massachusetts.

Why he didn't go on the doomed ride to Martha's Vineyard for a Kennedy family wedding is a mystery. But he was evidently not with Carolyn Bessette Kennedy last Friday night when she loaded her bags into a car-service vehicle and headed to the Essex Airport in Fairfield, N.J., according to published reports.

Friday was often seen tethered to a pole in Manhattan outside various eateries while his famous master enjoyed breakfast. He was also a companion for the couple when they cuddled and took walks in their Tribeca neighborhood.
