My blog has become insanely popular after only 12 hours of existence. Thousands of people have already written to me. (I am NOT making this up!) Of all the mail that’s come across my kennel, one of the main topics (other than how damn cute I am) is Barack Obama and what his presidency means for dogs.
First of all, now that America finally has a black president, we can set our sights on much more important milestones: like the first black and white president. Literally! I mean, what would be more patriotic than a Boston Terrier (The American Gentleman!) in office?? The only thing that worries me in peeing in the corner of an oval office… how’s that gonna work????
Anyways, the biggest issue facing pooches is the economy. If it continues to go into the crapper, that means less car rides, fewer toys, and lots of really bad food (probably made of old socks). So we’d better hope that Barack can either turn it around or throw a couple billion towards the table scrap industry, because I am NOT eating anybody’s argyles.
I was pleased to hear that the Obamas will be getting a “First Pet” in the White House. (Please don’t let it be a chihuahua – those guys are totally overrated. Plus, if you ask them, they know NOTHING about tacos, gorditos, or wanting Taco Bell.) I think you know which breed gets my vote. In fact, dogs across America should be able to vote for the First Dog. Perhaps a lineup of every breed, and the first one we sniff is the one that gets our vote. Sounds/smells good to me.
(NOTE: Despite many references to “Boston”, and in turn the state of Massachusetts, this blog does not endorse former MA governor Mitt Romney – or anyone else named after baseball equipment like Danny Glover or Batman.)
