Hi there sports fans…Sam here. Mom is still trying to rejuvenate herself and asked me to do today’s post. She said something about having voter fatigue and that she just couldn’t take all the negativity anymore and that she had nothing. Then she said something about not coming out from the covers for the next 22 days. Not sure what all that means but think it might be something related to whenever she turns on the TV and starts hollering lots of HBO words. Said she can’t watch anything without some nasty ad or crap-tastic lie from the candidates and I KNOW she isn’t talking about the ‘Candy Dates’ from Blogville. Both Arty and Christmas are totally pawsome!
So I thought I’d make things a little lighter and easier on you and her. I know it’s late in the campaign, but to save this country, I’m tossing my furs in the ring for the 2016 presidential race. I have no baggage (it helps when you don’t have any thumbs) and there are no sex crimes or escapades in my history (ok, except for that Bassett Hound at dog prison but I was under duress missing my mom while she was gallivanting around The Big Island back in May and I doubt he’d want any negative publicity-we left captivity as BFF’s-best fur-iends furever). Luckily there are no videos of any alleged transgressions, and I can assure you I didn’t utter any ‘locker room banter.’ I’m true red, white and blue and would be honored to receive your vote. My platform is simple…I think every pet should have a loving home with uprights who will take care of them and love them completely…and treats. Lots and lots of treats. But not so many that we end up becoming obese, mind you. I support daily exercise, ear scratches, lots of naps and baths should be optional not mandatory. There are no conflicts with lobbyists regarding any of those issues either. For the record, I never received any speaking fee in case you’re wondering.
Please consider my platform and relax knowing I can return dignity and honor to the institution of the presidency and hope you’ll seriously vote for me as the candidate who can bring everyone together with loads of smiles all the while making you proud to be an American again.
Vote for Sam, a true ‘pawtriot!’
On an additional note, I want to wish mom’s ‘baby sister’ a Happy Birthday today.
May smiles and fun, joy and cheer, luck and happiness stay with you all next year.
Hope your birthday brings all these to your door
Filling your life with delight and much more. We love ya. Woof!
Live, love, bark! <3

I will vote for you!!
Annabell has gone out with the ladies,- there is nothing worth watching on TV so it’s me, Benji. a large packet of crisps, large coffee and Season 6 of Downton Abbey. Nice.
One of my all time favorite series. I may have to search for the series on Selfridges now. I loved that series almost as much and sweet Elsa reminds me of Lady May.
As a Basset Hound, I admit to nothing. *wink~wink You will get our vote. We are so tired of the current political atmosphere.
Boy howdy…do I hear that. Even football games haven’t been enjoyable because of all the ads. Well that and too many of my teams lost last weekend. 😉
You have our vote for SURE Sam!!!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
Thanks for the support guys! We need to take things into our own paws. 😉
You have Teddy, D’Art and Luna’s votes for sure!
Pawfect! Us poodles have to stick together. 😉
Will you be barking at the debates on Wednesday??
Murphy & Stanley
Pee Ess – Be sure to get on the Blogville Christmas Card list!! The deadline is FIRM!! http://jazzis-world.blogspot.com/2016/10/news-flashnews-fash.html
That’s why I’ve been watching Netflix…no ads or commercials 🙂 and Sam you look fantastic in red white and blue!
If we were there we would vote for you- no argument . I agree with mama – although for me to would be re-run DVDs of eight seasons of Lewis
Ooh, the mama LOVES Lewis. Thanks for the vote of confidence!
Sam, you’ve got our vote. Will you legalize catnip and provide amnesty for Portuguese Water Dogs and Turkish Van Cats? 🙂
Absolutely! No constituency is too small for my attention as their president. 🙂
Sam – you can count on at least three votes from us (Kali, Kloe [she’s old enough in dog years], and I).
Pawsome, Michael. Hope I do you guys proud as YOUR president.
Sorry Sam but my mind is already made up. It’s time we had a black female president so I’m writing in “Minnie Mouse”.
Ok, Kismet…I’m good with that. Just make the darn ads and news coverage go away.
Sam, you definitely have my vote! I feel your mom’s pain because I feel the same way. Shadow’s and Ducky’s daddy is a news junkie, and it drives me nuts. To escape it, I take the girls out to the backyard and let them play. I can’t wait for this election to be over!!
That makes 2 of us! If there isn’t some outrageous news piece that has been shown 87 times in the past hour, it’s the ad nauseam replays of ads showing that horrible behavior. Ugh…
If I could, I’d discontinue tv service altogether; but then I’d be dealing with a divorce instead of the dt’s.
LOL…now that made me snort coffee all over my laptop. 😂
Most definitely we are writing Sam in for our vote!! XOXO – Bacon
Aww thanks, Bacon! Wanna be my campaign manager? 🇺🇸
Deal! How could we go wrong? XOXO – Bacon
P.S. Mom enjoyed talking to your mom yesterday 🙂
Not nearly as much as my mom did! Let’s hope next week is better on the gridiron.
You got that right! XOXO – Bacon
I think it would be cute to have a First Human in the White House…. I hope Mom’s up to the task!
First, we only watch Netflix and such. Obvious reasons. Second, I had to check with Noodle first (since his website is Noodle4President) and he assures me he is not actually running for president this year, so you definitely have my vote, Sam.
I know what you mean, Ms. Amy…I checked his website before threw my furs in the ring too. Thanks for your support. I just wish the rest of the country was as kind and loving as Blogville!
Choppy’s on board. Now, Schooner? He just doesn’t trust anyone of the canine bent.
You are paws-down a solid candidate, S.
Love and licks,
👍🏽 Thanks, Cupcake. I hope I can do everyone a solid this wretched campaign season.
You certainly have my vote, Sam! -Ellie
Sam, I would vote for you in a heartbeat!
I understand your mama, we are tired of the news in tv too… butt it seems both problems can be solved… for the tv, you can pick a fab dvd dogton abbey or proud and prejustice… and for the new president, you are the candidate everybuddy will love… and I vote for you with all 4 paws!
