I just bet more than 1/2 the registered voters in ‘Mer’ca wish they’d let us K9s have the vote before this most recent presidential & unfortunate (for many reasons) election. Cuz no Self-Respecting Offspring of Great Todo would ever consider supporting a leader that fosters anger & hatred, exploits fear & ignorance. Encourages violence & division. Nor would we support anyone who continually embarrasses my country with friends, allies & foes around AnimalPlanet.com.
No Self-Respecting Offspring of Great Todo would discriminate & attempt to separate the K9 Nation. No Self-Respecting Offspring of Great Todo would think to define 1 breed as superior to another. And no breed would think that they were better somehow, more equal & deserving of civil rights than a K9 of Mixed But Noble Heritage.
Under the skin & fur, we’re pretty much all the same. 4 legs. Loyal (to a fault, perhaps). Ready willing & able to pursue & complete any task assigned to us, however our outsides might appear. Myself, personally, I wouldn’t consider all brown-eyed Blue Merle Aussies, such as myself, superior to a blue-eyed Red Merle Aussie much less, say, a little fellow, loyal to his folks but of Mixed But Noble Heritage. Just not happening.
However us dogs aren’t gonna butt our heads against a brick wall advocating for the K9 Franchise. Not now. No way. I mean this president (I can barely bring myself to peck out that word associated with the person that now sometimes occupies the noble White House) doesn’t even have a family dog (we miss you Bo Bama) or a furry or finny or scaley companion of any species. Maybe he’s got a Gold Fish.
So stand down, K9 Nation. Stand down for now & watch while humans try to wiggle out of this unfortunate situation. We’ll be prepared to pick up our cause, advocate for the K9 Franchise when the mood of the nation is more open & receptive to that Pledge they often make in public gatherings: 1 nation, Under Great Todo, indivisible, with liberty & justice for all.
