For the first time in history, the dogs will have their say. It all started on a snowy January night. Two dogs and four friends watching the returns from the Iowa caucus. As the winter wore on and the primary season continued, it quickly became evident that this would be no ordinary election. With political participation at record levels across the nation, the desire for personal political expression has risen. Humans have countless outlets to convey their political opinions, but our canine companions, who watched every debate, primary, caucus and news show diligently with us, feel left out of the fun. The Dog Vote is keeping a running tally of how the dogs are voting in this election by selling McCain and Obama pet bandanas. They also are working on an interactive map detailing the particulars surrounding the dog vote in the 2008 presidential election. The fate of our nation lies in their paws. Let your dog show political allegiance by ordering a bandana today for $9.95.
