Who Wants To Be President?

Greetings friends and fellow doggies. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your sincere doggie commentator Chester L. W. Spaniel.

If you have been watching the news lately, you'd see there are lots and lots of people who want to become the next President of the USA. The number grows every day. As loyal fans may remember, I ran for President in 2012 and lost. I wonder if I should run again this time?

I had a discussion with my pragmatic campaign manager Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel about another run in 2016. We had a lot of things to consider. After all, the world of politics is becoming more brutal by the minute. You can expect to have yourself and your entire family thoroughly pelted with mud. You must be sure you don't have any nasty little secrets, or past indiscretions, and that you are squeaky clean.

Step 1. My tennis balls are squeaky clean. I slobber them almost every day to keep them that way.

Step 2. I checked outside, and there is no mud in my back yard, at least right now. If someone wants to throw mud at me, they'd have to cart it from their own yard.

Step 3. Refer the public to one of my favorite posts in which I said, and demonstrated, that I was not intolerant towards cats. Here is an excerpt:

"As more and more citizens become aware of the Squeaky Party and our slogan, Squeaky Toys for Everybody Except Cats, there have been suggestions that our anti-cat position is discrimination. So I decided to ask my resident cat, Maddie, what she thinks about squeaky toys. She says that although squeaky toys are not her favorite type of plaything, many other cats like them very much. Therefore, I will remove that part of our slogan. After all, the essence of the Squeaky Party is for as many citizens as possible to experience the joy of squeaky toys, thus promoting world peace."

Well, that's a lot to think about! I probably should follow Joey's example and rest my brain box for a while. We plan to discuss more pros and cons at a future date. 

Tomorrow's another day! 


  1. I heard da White House has its own chef - dat sounds like enuf reason for me.

  2. The white house does have a big garden and we hear lots of squirrels too - you could be very busy keeping world order with a bunch of squirrels running around

  3. I think that it could work. There's lots of things to do. Fly around in airplanes and helicopters. Outlaw bad people including dog and cat peeps. And there is that large yard to run around and pee in...

  4. Well my darling Chester, you will ALWAYS get MY vote!!!!
