|Meanie Mitt. Grrrr.|
During the 12-hour trip, Seamus (the Romney's Irish Setter) lost control of his bowels in fear, to which Romney's response was to stop at a gas station to give the poor dog an "emotion-free" hosing-down before returning to the highway for hours more driving with Seamus still frightened, lonely, wind-buffeted, uncomfortable, and now dripping wet.
The ABC News strory also quotes Ingrid Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals as saying "It is commonsense that any dog who's under extreme stress might show that stress by losing control of his bowels: that alone should have been sufficient indication that the dog was, basically, being tortured."
Newkirk went on to say Romney's treatment of Seamus was "a lesson in cruelty that was ... wrong for [his children] to witness."
Join my pack. Help me stop meanie Mitt.
