Politics - Nancy Pelosi

Because we were bred for hunting, we are keen observers of our environment. Unfortunately, humans frown on bringing dead animals in from the yard, so we focus our rapier sharp skills on other activities
. And, because we are the most civic minded bitches at the dog park, we have been following politics with great interest. Here’s what we found: Nancy Pelosi is just like a Boston Terrier. Even your weak human eyes can see the similarities.

We know some very famous Boston Terriers, Roxy and Zion, who - when consulted - confirmed that Miss Pelosi is just the type of Bitch they would call their own. She has also been known to exhibit some strikingly dog-esque behavioral patterns. Compare her reaction to President Obama’s State of the Union address to the Boston Terrier JazzyLou’s reaction to seeing her toy in a bird bath. The similarities are striking.

Additionally, Speaker Pelosi’s dogged pursuit of President Obama’s healthcare legislation is just the type of behavior exhibited by the Boston Terrier. The American Kennel Club states (speaking of both the Boston Terrier and Nancy Pelosi) “they require only a moderate amount of exercise and a minimum amount of grooming. The breed is easy to train and they are easy keepers, preferring to remain by their owner’s sides.” This explains both Miss Pelosi’s look and her unwavering support of the President.

The similarities continue, “the dog conveys an impression of determination, strength and activity, with style of a high order; carriage easy and graceful. The thighs are strong and well muscled, bent at the stifles and set true. The hocks are short to the feet, turning neither in nor out, with a well defined hock joint. The feet are small and compact with short nails.” A perfect description if we’ve ever heard one.

As the most powerful Bitch in Congress, we have immense respect for Speaker Pelosi, although Maggie has never agreed with her worldview. And we imagine that, like the Boston Terrier, in person she would be friendly and lively - which makes her an incomparable companion!

And I do concur...a "perfect description" if I've ever seen one! And I've seen a few. ;)
