It’s over 100 degrees out today, for the third day in a row. Definitely the type of weather that guarantees tongues will be out this Tongue Out Tuesday. But it is just too hot to play outside today, so Sadie decided to try on her special patriotic outfit in preparation for Flag Day tomorrow. Luckily the heat is supposed to break tonight, so Sadie and I plan on enjoying a nice Flag Day walk to enjoy our city’s special holiday display of flags.
Sadie has decided not to vote in the election this time around. Although she’s old enough to vote, being around 29 in human years, Sadie is just not sure about any of the candidates. She feels like none of the issues mattering to her were addressed at all.
Where is the universal health coverage for pets? Sadie is lucky enough to have health insurance, but what about all the less fortunate dogs and cats out there?
Sadie also says she has a problem with immigration. How can we take care of pets from other countries when we have so many pets looking for homes that were born in the USA? She does sympathize with animals from other nations and thinks we should send more foreign aid money to help with spay and neuter programs in less fortunate places.
Animal cruelty is also a big issue that none of the candidates discussed. Sadie thinks there should be federal laws making cruelty to animals a felony, instead of letting the individual states determine the crime and punishment.
Since not a single one of these issues were discussed by the candidates, Sadie has told me to vote for whomever I prefer.
While not endorsing any of the candidates, Sadie says that Hillary Clinton does get bonus points for living with two poodle mix dogs (and a lab).
Sadie was so inspired by the Olympics that she decided to try out one of the sports involved. I looked around the house and the only sporting equipment I could find was this basketball. There’s just one problem – the basketball is basically the same size as Sadie!
