Pug Post-Presidential Election Letdown

We were feeling so proud of our little pug selves for coming up with a pug political platform. (See the October 16 Pug Political Platform posting). We spent hours on our proposals, covering all the hot topics – global warming, healthcare, tax stimulus and immigration. Our requests were simple: the first candidate to support our platform would get the vote of every pug in the nation, or at least those who are eligible to vote; i.e. pugs over 2 years and 6 months old who have never had to wear a stun collar and haven’t been on anti-hallucinogenic drugs within the last 12 months.

But we were ignored. Neither candidate responded.

Then we all had an awful thought. Could it be that pugs are not really important in the scheme of things? Oh no!


But then it occurred to us – the reason we had been totally ignored. Neither Obama nor Romney have pugs! Obama has that Portuguese water dog who spends most of his time obsessing over his hair, and Romney likes Irish Setters, known to be beautiful creatures but total airheads.  Those two breeds don’t know a thing about politics.

Suddenly it all made perfect sense! Obama and Romney have no idea about the political power, the powder keg of political activism at their fingertips in the Pug Nation.

We now know what we have to do. We have four years to educate the public about pug political clout. Watch out – here we come!


  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However think of if you added some great pictures
    or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and videos, this website could certainly be one of the best in
    its field. Amazing blog!
