Canine politics, fetching and kvetching
Blog Guy, do dogs have political views?
Not all of them, but certainly those graffiti-trained dogs do.
There are dogs that are trained to spot graffiti?
They don’t spot it, they WRITE it.
They boil complex viewpoints down to some pretty simple words. Don’t get my golden retriever started on the IMF and Ireland’s economic woes…
This is incredible. I’ve never even seen a dog writing graffiti.
Well of course you haven’t. The training wouldn’t be very good if you caught them at it, would it?
That’s the beauty of this talent. They write whatever they want, then sit back and smile with their tongues hanging out while some poor ghetto kid gets blamed for it.
But this is the most sophisticated thing I’ve ever heard of a dog doing!
Oh, it’s really not so much compared with the dogs who made those attack commercials during the recent election…
