McCain leads Obama among pet owners

The Associated Press reports:

If the presidential election were up to pet owners, John McCain could have a blue ribbon in his future.

From George Washington’s foxhounds Drunkard and Tipsy to George W. Bush’s terriers Barney and Miss Beazley, pets are a longtime presidential tradition for which the presumed Republican nominee seems well prepared, with more than a dozen.

This is the first the Daily Doxie‘s heard of Drunkard and Tipsy who were clearly named long before political correctness took hold.
