Thursday 24 November 2022 11:29 PM Jill and Ashley Biden take first dog Commander for a Thanksgiving walk trends now
The first lady and Ashley walked out of the $30 million compound the Biden clan is staying in on Nantucket to the private beach attached to the residence. Ashley appeared to bend down to pick something off the beach. The beaches in Nantucket are filled with shells and colorful stones.
They also took the dog out on a dock that overlooks the Nantucket Harbor.
Commander looked off the edge as if contemplating a jump into the icy water but the German shepherd pup was on a leash and stayed safely on shore.
Ashley, at one point, held up her phone for a selfie, with the first lady peering over her daughter's shoulder to get in the frame.
President Joe Biden didn't join the mom and daughter duo. The two women were dressed warmly for the sunny but chilly day, wearing black winter coats. Ashley wore a purple hat.

The walk capped off a busy Thanksgiving Day for the Bidens, who are spending the holiday weekend on the island off the coast of Massachusetts.
The first couple called into the Macy's Day Parade, telephoned various branches of the U.S. military, and took their two-year-old grandson Beau with them when they visited a Nantucket fire station to hand out pumpkin pies and offer thanks for their service.
The first couple held hands with the little boy as they walked up to greet the brigade on their Thanksgiving Day visit.
'How are you guys?' President Biden said. 'You're the best.'
The firefighters gave Beau, who is named after Biden's late son Beau, a miniature firefighter hat.
The little boy, wearing jeans and a blue puffer coat, promptly put the red hat on over his long blonde hair. He held onto the first lady, who the grandkids call 'Nana.'
President Biden received a baseball cap with the logo of the Nantucket Fire Department, which he put on.

The president also met with Nantucket Fire Department captain Nathan Barber, who was named Nantucket's man of the year.
Barber this summer helped fight a massive fire at the historic Veranda House hotel, which took out that building and two nearby homes.
At the time the fire started, he was off-duty and getting coffee nearby when he saw the smoke billowing from the Veranda
