It's a dog's life

I know it's only Tuesday but this is already my favorite picture of the week. Tweeted last night by David Axelrod under the heading: How loving owners transport their dogs.

This, of course, was a not very subtle dig at Romney, referencing the story of how Mitt's poor dog Seamus was strapped to the roof of the Romney family station wagon. Today comes this rumor that contrary to Anne Romney's claim that the pup survived and lived a long and happy life, in fact Romney's dog Seamus ran away once they reached their destination.
Mitt Romney may not have told the whole truth about the scandalous tale of his Irish Setter, Seamus, being strapped to the roof of his car during a 12-hour family road trip to Canada. According to a trusted Politicker tipster, two of Mr. Romney’s sons had an off-record conversation with reporters where they revealed the dog ran away when they reached their destination on that infamous journey in 1983.
Unsourced internet rumor so who knows if it's true, however one does wonder why the Romneys have never released any photos of Seamus enjoying his old age, lolling in comfort in one of the many Romney family homes.

Meanwhile, the canine contingent have organized their own super PACK, Dogs Against Romney. They ride inside. Just like Bo.
