A couple days ago they had this big thing called the Presidential Election. People got all excited and some people ended up happy and some people were not so happy.
I think that everyone should be happy, so here’s my plan.
I’m going to run for president.
If I became president everybody would be happy. That’s because I’m going to campaign on a promise of “Treats for Everyone.” How could anyone not be happy with that.
Dogs would get treats, and people too. I’d even make sure that all the cats got treats.
I figure this is a foolproof campaign. How could anyone not vote for me when they’re getting treats?
Oh. My person just told me that in order to give treats to everyone I would have to raise taxes, and nobody likes that.
I don’t think that’s a problem. I tax in loves and everybody likes to give me loves. All you have to do is give me a few extra loves and I’ll turn them into treats. Problem solved.
So remember in the next presidential election to get out and vote.
Bongo in 2016! Treats for Everyone!

You would definitely get my vote! Would Scratchy be your VP?
November 8, 2012 at 11:05 am
Thanks Jaz. I haven’t decided on a running mate yet. I was thinking of another dog, but I might have to put up with Scratchy because he’d help me get the cat votes.

Ya think 🙂

This whole zoo will definitely vote for you!
November 8, 2012 at 11:06 am
Thanks Susan. It’s great to know I’ve already got a few votes I can count on.
Will and Eko

Eko says he will follow you to the ends of the earth with that campaign!
November 8, 2012 at 5:07 pm
Maybe Eko could be my campaign manager.
November 8, 2012 at 12:08 pm
Yeah, finally someone who makes sense. Next election I’ll vote early AND often! Can I be a campaign worker & carry the bags of treats around? Go Bongo….Loves, Lola
November 8, 2012 at 5:09 pm
Lola, you can definitely be a worker on my campaign. There will be lots of treat bags so you don’t have to worry if one of them somehow ends up empty.
November 9, 2012 at 9:01 am
Excellent Bongo! Now you sure about enough treats? Cause I do love my treats and sometimes I lose count.
November 9, 2012 at 12:18 pm
Lola, there will be lots of treats, but you do have to make sure you share some of them.
Kat n collies
November 8, 2012 at 12:31 pm
You would have our vote! The collies Love treats!
November 8, 2012 at 5:10 pm
Yay Collies. I’m sending my person to the store for extra treats now. Hey person, you’d better get going. I’m starting to run out of treats.
November 8, 2012 at 2:35 pm
Wow, Bongo, you would become the best president ever: yes, we vote for the best United Treats President ever!
November 8, 2012 at 5:12 pm
Angels Whisper, I like that new name for our country – United Treats. Of course I have to start a new party to campaign under – The Dog Party.
November 8, 2012 at 5:19 pm
Treats for Loves sounds like a fantastic campaign. Maybe you could aim for World Leader? (Dream Big Bongo!)
November 8, 2012 at 5:41 pm
Bumpy Road, World Leader sounds like a plan. I hope I can convince my person to make all those extra trips for treats.
November 8, 2012 at 8:59 pm
Great idea Bongo! Why didn’t our candidates think of that it would have made commercials and voting so much easier 🙂
November 8, 2012 at 9:36 pm
Thanks Lexie and Mica. We can make the next election way easier.
November 9, 2012 at 12:44 am
If I was American..I would VOTE FOR BONGO , not just for the treats, although thye would be nice, but because you speak the truth and you are honest and you have the most gorgeous eyes with that fantastic nose, and I am your adoring fan
November 9, 2012 at 12:03 pm
Thanks Patreciau. You’re making me blush. It’s a good thing you can’t see it under all my hair.
November 9, 2012 at 1:02 am
I find this a great idea [well, I am partial, great fan of yours]… however I may have an even better idea for you [and all of us], run for Earth’s President! We shall all pay you in loves and treats and you’ll give us loves & treats back. How ’bout that?!!! Everyone happy, no one hungry, everybody rich in loves! BONGO BONGO BONGO!!!!! 😀
November 9, 2012 at 12:05 pm
Thanks Marina. I guess if I get the support of all my blogging friends around the world I would consider running for Earth’s President. Treats for Everyone!
November 9, 2012 at 2:05 am
I hope they will be wagg treats that you are giving out to everyone?? We do treats for doggies (obviously) but also for small furiends too check em out!! http://www.waggfoods.com
November 9, 2012 at 12:15 pm
Dalton, for sure I will be handing out Wagg Treats. That would get me lots of votes.
November 12, 2012 at 2:01 am
Good boy!! BOL
November 9, 2012 at 5:44 am
Do you need a campaign manager? Never too early to start!
November 9, 2012 at 12:16 pm
Ellen, you’re on. I sure can use a campaign manager.
November 9, 2012 at 7:42 am
Woo woo Bongo!!! I’d love to vote for you if I were American dog! You’d be a great president ever! What? Dogs can’t vote? Oh no!!!! *sniff*
November 9, 2012 at 12:17 pm
Kevin, we’re going to make sure we change that dog voting rule before the next election. And even if you’re not an American dog you can still help me run my campaign.
November 9, 2012 at 9:16 am
I will give you lots of loves, I want to be happy too!
So, count me in. I can help you with the treats making ♥
November 9, 2012 at 12:19 pm
YouKai, you’re on. Loves and treat making. Sounds like the greatest!
November 9, 2012 at 2:49 pm
You’ve got my vote Bongo! And my kitties’ votes too! But my bunny is concerned — are bunny treats part of your plan?
November 9, 2012 at 5:33 pm
Remy, I hadn’t thought that far – but I guess I’ll have to send my person out for some special bunny treats.
November 10, 2012 at 5:49 am
Hey Bongo, Jet here.
I support your platform already! Perhaps you would consider having Little Miss Professional Paw Shaker as your VP?
November 10, 2012 at 11:55 am
Hey Jet, that’s a great idea. I’ll kiss the babies but we need someone who’s good at shaking paws.
November 10, 2012 at 12:22 pm
Sounds like a solid plan… I can be your “secret service” guy.
November 10, 2012 at 12:46 pm
For sure Jet.
November 10, 2012 at 7:34 am
The collies love it! Except for Ginger…. she wants to be president as a stepping stone to become Dictator of the Universe….. You got our vote!!!
November 10, 2012 at 12:13 pm
Thanks Collies. Ginger won’t beat me out unless she give out better treats. She might have to wait until I’m ready to step down before she runs.
