Barking the vote.

I was so very excited when I woke up this morning - election day was finally here!!  I had donned my favorite Stephen Colbert t-shirt in anticipation of this potentially historic day. 

I have spent months and months trying to sniff out the right pawson for the job
Finally I was ready to go to the polling station to cast my vote...of course Riley had to "poo-poo" all of my fun by trying to come along. 
I tried to explain that Canada is ANOTHER country and that he was simply not allowed to vote. Well he pointed out his disgust by doing a "number two" right at the polling station.
Of course, then mom had to spoil my fun by telling me that dogs are not even allowed to vote! 

Hmph! I guess my vote will have to wait until next time.

Yeah, I think dogs should be allowed to vote too. You must have been terribly disappointed when you found out that you couldn't vote!

All doggies should be able to vote! We'd make some good choices. We could lobby the new prez.

Gee sorry to hear you can't vote, Toffee. I think they should CHANGE that. All dogs should be allowed to vote.

Hi Toffee
I didn't vote either. But cause we're a swinging state we got lots of stuff in the mail. I chewed some of them. Tasty.

Hi, Toffee -

Don't feel bad - we didn't get to vote either. Mama kept saying that she wanted me (Hershey) to run for President because she thought I would do a better job than President Bush.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
