Do What Mom Can't Do!

(Thanks to our friend Amelia for the cute pic)

Mom is very miffed that permanent residents (green card holders) in the USA do not have the right to vote. She says it is not fair - she isn't going anywhere (well, actually that's not true - if Geezer and Dingbat win tomorrow - she will be looking for continent #4 to move to - Australia or Canada?) - she should get to voice her opinion on who should serve as President of America.

We'll be crossing paws here tomorrow that everyone goes and casts their vote undetered by record lines at polling stations. Mom well remembers the incredible lines in the first democratic elections in South Africa in 2004 - they were so long, they had to extend voting by another day. Here is one pic from that momentous day:

Peace to all.

Axel..we sympathize with your mom, but want to remind her that she can still make phone calls or take a neighbor to the polls.

We are thinkin' that Mars might be good if the Senior Senator wins this election. A BIG terrier colony!

sorry you couldn't vote Dani, but rest assured, I voted for you (and the way you would have!) I think it's stupid that you can work and pay taxes...and not vote...
Here's hoping for a change we can all count on.

No need to move for you now Axel! What a fantastic result, we were barking for you all...(though a Foxy Commune sounded tempting)

Oh and Axel...waaaaa....I've got the itchies like you have...sob..Mm sobbing too...
