INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Pence family rabbit named Marlon Bundo has died.

Mike Pence’s daughter, Charlotte Pence Bond, bade farewell Saturday on Twitter to the beloved family pet.

She wrote, “Marlon, you came into our lives at just the moment we needed you most. I never could have predicted that a little bunny I found on Craigslist for a college student film would give me the courage to write my first book and be the inspiration for two more.”

Marlon was the main character in a children’s book, “Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of a Vice President.”
