My Dog

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day.

He has his food prepared for him.

He can eat whenever he wants, 24/7/365.

His meals are provided at no cost to him.

He visits the doctor once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise.

For this He pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.

He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than He needs, but He is not required to do any upkeep.

If He makes a mess, someone else cleans it up.

He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep.

He receives these accommodations absolutely free.

He is living like a king, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever.

All of his costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day.

I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head,

Holy S#!t, my dog is a democrat!

  1. He needs to get a job. Are there any Alaskan sled teams forming near you?

  2. While doggies may have a lot in common with democrats, dogs at least don't pull an elitist, condescending attitude about it.

  3. If he constantly barks, I would say he's a democrat.

  4. Actually, I think your dog is my brother-in-law.

  5. Actually, when my Tobi was alive he chased geese. At least he worked for his keep.

    Great fun, I had the some joke in my inbox.

  6. You've all heard of Blue Dog Democrats...

  7. and then there are yellow dogs, also
