No. No animals were harmed during the filming of this footage. The dogs may look a tad bit dismayed, but I can assure you it is more because their chipmunk-chasing capers were rudely interrupted for a pro-Obama photo shoot than because they’re wearing adorable Obama caps!! The canines are fast losing patience with the farcical nature of the political arena and pretty much just want the darn thing to be over with. They are convinced their human mother will then return to being a nice person instead of the crazy, wacko, she-who-yells-at-the-stereo lady who has been inhabiting the house.
The daughter on the other hand is fired up and ready to go and asked the other day when she can vote!!! Tonight she was giving her presidential address in the bathroom mirror about the great country of America and how awesome it is to be a democracy and free and everyone should come here to take part in it. Not kidding. She really said all that. We’d just finished our Social Studies lesson in which we’ve been incorporating our Mount Rushmore visit. So we’ve been discussing past presidents and their accomplishments and, if I do say so myself, we had a rather good lesson tonight on the topic of democracies versus dictatorships and immigration and the path to citizenship. Honestly, she humbles me and it is such a scramble to stay one step ahead!!
Again, WE’RE IN!!!!! Are you? 🙂
