Turnabout Is Fair Play

The Obama article was posted simply for the express purpose of letting his dog loving supporters know it's out there.

Since there is no Canines For McCain, if someone starts one please let me know, here's what I have found for his dog loving supporters. After all...turnabout is fair play.

There was a poll done recently to find out which candidate pet owners were more likely to support. The winner, ladies and gentlemen, was McCain.

An AP-Yahoo! News poll found that pet owners favor McCain over Obama 42 percent to 37 percent, with dog owners particularly in McCain's corner.

"I think a person who owns a pet is a more compassionate person - caring, giving, trustworthy. I like pet owners," said Janet Taylor of Plymouth, Mass.

Taylor, who described herself as a retired stay-at-home wife, owns two cats, Lady Jane Taylor and Mr. Tommy Katz.

Richard Powell, 79, of Spokane, Wash., whose dog passed away last fall, said if a person owns a pet that "tells you that they're responsible at least for something, for the care of something."

He said pet ownership wouldn't make a difference in his vote, but if a president owns a pet, then "I'm glad to know they like animals."

Christina Duffney, a spokeswoman for the American Kennel Club, said "you usually connect with things that you're familiar with, so that could be a part of" why pet owners lean toward McCain.

It also found that cat lovers lean towards McCain as well, that's for all the Catsters out there.

If your pup wants to show his support for a candidate they can order one of these cool looking shirts, available for both candidates.
