Instantly putting himself in the running for political candor awards, Colombian Vice President Angelino Garzon eschewed the tired spend-more-time-with-my-family cliche and went with a much rarer reason for turning down a government job: His dog would get too hot.

I wouldn’t want to inflict my presidency on my dog either.

He looks guilty of something.
Your dog, maybe future President, looks a lot like my dearly departed Logan, he was a Lab-Chow mix. I always told people I adopted a black dog to show how open-minded I was.
Hey I have a black dog too.
One black dog, two twin retards, and one baby girl.
Is that an Australian Shepherd? I just adopted a Golden Retriever mix from a rescue group and I think he’s part AS, so I’ve been researching them recently.
I got $10 that your dog is smarter, a lot smarter than our current pResident.
looks smarter too.
He’s famous! I just entered ‘Angelino Garzon’ and ‘dog’ on google images and he showed up. LOL!
