They have a bone to pick with anti-maskers.

First pooches Major and Champ Biden will take center stage in a public service announcement Sunday during the Puppy Bowl about the importance of mask-wearing to fight the coronavirus, according to a report Friday.

The lovable German Shepherds are shown in the ad lounging by a fireplace next to first Lady Jill Biden as she stresses the need for face covers — even while walking your dog outside, according to footage posted by The Hill.

“For a lot of us during this pandemic, our pets have been such a source of joy and comfort…And maybe a bark or two on a video conference,” Biden says in the ad, which will air during Animal Planet’s annual Puppy Bowl.

“We owe it to them to keep ourselves healthy. So please keep wearing your masks, even when you’re out walking your dog,” she says.

The ad then tells viewers to visit the website for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is urging football fans to take precautions while watching the Super Bowl this year.
