What is going on with Republicans and dogs? First Mitt Romney boasted how he strapped the family furkid into a dog crate on the top of the family vehicle for a twleve hour trip. Now Delaware Republicans are auctioning off a Black Lab puppy to raise money at a fundraiser next week.

Someone needs to tell these folks that auctioning off a puppy is soooo last century. Puppies need to be carefully placed in loving homes, not auctioned off like a piece of jewelry or a painting.

I know there are lots of caring Republican Dogsters so I don’t think this has anything to do with being a Republican but, hey, can someone talk to these people?

I am not promoting or denigrating any political party but come on, Sussex County Republicans. Was Pennsylvania’s Rick Santorum the only public member of your party that cared about animals?

Here’s the announcement on the Delaware GOP site. It doesn’t mention the puppy but the tip came from very reputable rescuers.

If the Sussex County and Delaware Republicans want to bark in and tell us it ain’t so, I’d love to hear from them!
