I am not a politics kind of dog. I am a playing and romping and barking and blogging about fun stuff kind of dog but when my mom told me a story this week about a man named Mitt Romney who is running for president of the United States I got barking mad.
My mom told me Mr. Romney made his Irish Setter, Seamus, ride in a crate on top of the family car on a twelve hour trip to Canada. To make things clear to his family that he didn't like the car ride, Seamus made the windows very unclear, if you know what I mean, but Seamus still keep on riding on top of the car, scared to death.
What kind of man makes his dog ride OUTSIDE of the family car, anyway? And what kind of voter would think twice about voting for a man who can't make room for his dog INSIDE the family car? If you ask me, if Mitt can't make a simple decision about where he should put his dog when he goes on family trips then how do you think he will do as the top decision maker for the United States?
For me, he lost my vote (and I can't even vote) because I believe dogs are meant to ride INSIDE the car and here are some of my friends who agree that Mitt was just plain mean to Seamus:
First up is Fred the Wheaten Terrier, and then
Joey the Italian Greyhound, and then
Jesse the Foxhound Mix, and then
Sophie the Basset/Beagle Mix, and
Duke the Schnauzer Mix, and finally,
Fenway the Pug!
I could go on and on showing you a lot more of my friends who ride INSIDE of their family's cars but I think you get the point.
Mitt is mean. I know all of my dog friends can't vote but you can get your humans to do it for you! Just visit the Dogs Against Romney website and the Dogs Against Romney Facebook page and get right to work!
And, don't FURget that my feline friends voice their opinion by joining the Cats In Solidarity With Dogs Against Mitt Romney Facebook page!
That's right, my friends, my twelve year old kitty brother, Henry, rides inside too! Yup, my mom thinks dogs AND cats should ride IN the car with her instead of inside a crate on top of the car. She's cool like that, you know.
So, my question is.....are you going to tell the world that you are proud to ride inside the car? Are you going to bark the news about Dogs Against Romney and about Cats In Solidarity With Dogs Against Mitt Romney? I hope you do!
