76 percent of dogs in U.S. think ‘Bush bites’

Democrats have clear advantage in canine poll

PORTLAND—VanDogh Creations reports “polling data” showing that the presidential race isn’t even close…as far as dogs are concerned. Last month the company launched Bush-BITES!™ and Kerry-Waffles™—superior dog treats with a political twist. Today, the company reports that the latest results show that more dogs would prefer to take a bite out of President Bush than candidate John Kerry.

“When you buy a bag of treats on our Web site, your dog is casting a vote and we keep a tally,” said Chris Jones, the creator. “If you check our Web site today, you will see that apparently 76 percent of dogs think that Bush-BITES!, while so far only 24 percent believe Kerry-Waffles. That’s a slight uptick for the Democrats over the last couple of weeks.” You can view up-to-date results on the company’s Web site at www.vandogh.com.

“Dog owners will tell you that their dogs are great judges of character,” said Jones. “We believe polling dogs will prove to be a valid indicator for elections. If a groundhog can forecast when spring is coming, surely dogs are more than capable of predicting the next president.”

Janeane Garofalo’s dogs, Dewey and Kid, favor Bush-BITES! saying: “We don’t understand why Kerry-Waffles are even an option. It’s been said that we’ll eat anything, but no—we won’t eat Kerry-Waffles. We only eat things that are true.” The company tried to locate a GOP spokesdog to comment, but was unable to find a “Karl Rover” willing to go on the record.

Are dogs more liberal by nature? Will conservative dogs start barking louder to make their voices heard? No matter which biscuit comes out on top, in this election everyone wins because 20 percent of the company’s net proceeds are donated to charities. Check out the latest results and purchase treats at www.vandogh.com.

You can buy an 11 ounce bag of the all-natural peanut butter treats on the company’s Web site (www.vandogh.com) for $9.99 plus shipping. The treats are also available at select pet stores and boutiques around the U.S., from California to New York. Illinois stores include 4 Legs Pet Products and The Barking Lot in Chicago.
