Romney's Banned from Dog Adoption List

Dogs Against Romney

We were contacted today by a family in South Carolina who wanted to let us know they have officially BANNED the Romney's from consideration as adoptive "parents" for any of their new litter of adorable puppies.

I think this is a great idea. Does anybody else want to officially ban the Romney's from their adoption lists? Let us know.

I am not a Romney supporter but I have to say this is just stupid. It is as stupid as the hotel / porno stuff.
If you oppose him oppose him on real not imagined issues.

Same here. He’s not my candidate but behaving like liberals isn’t the way to deal with him.

This IS just wrong....

“On that trip, Romney, his wife, sons and the family’s Irish setter, Seamus, were driving from Boson to Ontario. Romney put Seamus into a dog kennel and tied it on top of his station wagon. He said he had rigged up a windshield to make the dog more comfortable. Whether it was the car’s speed, the wind, noise, passing traffic or whatever, at some point during the 12-hour journey Romney’s sons began complaining about a brown liquid running down the vehicle’s back window.

Romney told the Boston Globe that he remained cool under the trying circumstances, quickly exited the highway, pulled into a service station and used a water hose to rinse the car free of what turned out to be diarrhea from the stressed out dog on the roof. He then thought to blast Seamus with some water to clean the diarrhea off him before pulling back onto the highway and continuing the trip to Canada with the dog still lashed to the station wagon’s roof.

Romney contends the dog must have enjoyed the experience because it later climbed onto the car’s roof unassisted. But some people have said that his action probably violated Massachusetts’s animal anticruelty laws.

And Time magazine reports that Ingrid Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, wrote on Time’s “Swampland” blog: “If you wouldn’t strap your child to the roof of your car, you have no business doing that to the family dog!”

Come on. It’s just silly.

Someone with too much time on his hands put up a silly website. I find it funny. Not the deal about what he did with his dog, but the site is funny.

THis the same Ingrid Newkirk whose organization is infamous for killing their charges instead of caring for them?

Romney is an idiot. My favorite part is how he uses this as an example of how he stayed calm under pressure.

Brown liquid on the back window!?! And he is proud of it?

Geez oh pete, this man has brown liquid for brains.

My pup has taken a vacation to Grannie’s cottage with Daddy and the Girls. She has her own personal throne in the truck. (middle front seat).

When we were coming back from vacation last week, we saw a dog in the bed of a truck speeding down the highway. Some people just have no brains.

Just for the record, there are "animal activists" who would claim you were being cruel to your pet. If you slammed on the brakes, the dog would not be restrained and would fly through the window (unless, as they propose, you make sure your dog has a seat belt too.)

And as for people who's small pets ride in their laps duirng a car ride, a sudden stop, airbags deploy...bye, bye pet.

Our dogs ride unrestrained, but I know I've talked to a few "dog people" who thought we were being reckless. (main reason I'd like to restrain our Weims is they think they should be doing the driving and although they sit in the back, they'll often rest their head on the shoulder of the driver.)

Well, we have talked about a seat belt for her, but then she climbs over and falls asleep in Daddy’s lap. Awwwwww!

Big deal, I couldn't adopt a rescue dog from an agency because (Horror of all horrors) I had owned a miniature Dachshund years before that hadn't been neutered.
Apparently that made me a bad owner who wasn't worthy of saving an animal from lethal injection.

This isn't the kind of hit piece needed here, let his flip flopping record speak for itself.

My mother in law rides on top. The dog rides up front with me in the front passenger seat, wife and kids in the back.
