Give Me A Break

Mitt Romney is getting a bad rap for strapping the family dog to the roof of their station wagon. Oh yeah, and it was more than a dozen years ago that this occurred.

Animal rights activists are, typically, outraged. This is my favorite quote.
The president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says — "If you wouldn't strap your child to the roof of your car, you have no business doing that to the family dog."
Please allow me to point out, as a parent and a life-long dog owner, that you do plenty of things to your dog that you would never do to your child, such as:
  • Feed your dog out of a bowl on the kitchen floor

  • Have your dog spayed or neutered before it hits puberty.

  • Make your dog live in a small, uninsulated house in the back yard, year 'round.

  • Put your dog in a small box in the bed of your pickup to transport it.(They are called dog boxes, and they are abundant in the south.)

  • Rub your dog's nose in the little present (s)he left in the den.

  • Cage your dog while you are at work so you don't have to hire someone to watch it.
Really the list could go on for days. Granted, this doesn't necessarily mean I think you should strap your dogs carrier to the roof of your car, but I also think PETA is completely full of shit.
