Wlady: So if Romney had done this to a pug this would have been okay? Myself and my companion animal Bear eagerly await your reply/apology. No Pugs Need Apply for a Seat in the Car? Is that what we’ve come to?
Seriously, though, the mini-outrage over this story about forcing the dog to ride on the roof cannot be dismissed as some marginal PETA thing. According to the American Pet Association almost 45 million Americans own nearly 63 million dogs today. Now, while I’m sure not all of those Americans are good dog owners–as sure as I am, in fact, that all but the smallest fraction of those dogs are good dogs–I nonetheless prefer to believe very, very few of them would look kindly upon strapping a dog carrier to a car roof for half a day.
