Mitt Romney: Dog Lover 29 June, 2007

Today, I was reading Smalldogarific and found an excellent article about an awful incident involving Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, an Irish Setter, and diarrhea.

According to Smalldogarific, it seems that “back in 1983 he placed his Irish Setter, Seamus, in a carrier on the roof of the family car for a 12-hour trip from Boston to Ontario.” Naturally, Seamus reacted to this situation with a so-called “diarrhea attack.”

Mitt Romney describes the experience

Mitt Romney: what a classy guy.

Perhaps some of you might be a little puzzled by my being a fan of a blog about small dogs given my recent open letter to small-breed dog owners.

Perhaps someone could read my letter and think that I’m clearly anti-small dog. I wouldn’t really blame you, either–I did jokingly call small dogs “squeak toy[s]” in one bit.

But remember I also said that I find all dogs to be equally wonderful and distinct, regardless of size. So, in case anyone is wondering, I do like small dogs. Actually, I like almost all dogs, though I stand by my previous letter.
