Thomas Peterson for Mayor

Anoka needs a new mayor. As a French Bulldog, I feel I am suitably qualified. I know how to sit, shake hands, and, in an emergency, play dead. Additionally, I promise that I won't roll over on any issue.

Throw me a bone

Well, after a long vacation I'm back in good form. I got a lot of sun and had time to reflect on my failed bid for Anoka mayor. I've been spending a lot of time reading books, such as "Don't Pee on the Floor" and "Stop Chewing on That," and I realized that my bad manners may have had an impact on my campaign. Maybe, I thought, people do care if you haven't bathed in three months or haven't brushed your teeth in a week.

I guess I have a lot to learn if I want to get into politics.

On a Lighter Note

Friday, November 10, 2006

A dog friend sent me this funny comic. If it weren't for the curly tail, I'd swear this was a picture of me.

I guess I should get off of my tail-less butt and write a concession entry. That's right. I lost. Bjorn won. Boo hoo. I guess the world isn't ready for a French Bulldog mayor yet. Maybe my shadow campaign wasn't such a great strategy after all. I did get at least three votes, though, and there's always next year.

Taking Time

With nine days to go until elections, I have been getting less sleep than usual. Every once in a while, though, I crash for a few hours. Dare I say cat nap?

I've been so preoccupied with the other aspects of my mayoral bid that I neglected my favorite part - you and this blog. My campaign for mayor of Anoka is in full heat and it has required all of the concentration I can muster to stay on top of everything. I've noticed lately that I concentrate with such intensity that I will stick my tongue out, like Michael Jordan.

Well, I sure hope that my campaign is a slam dunk. In case my two opponents, Bjorn and Steve, decide to put up a fight, I need to be prepared. The yard sign war is hot and heavy now, as Bjorn has decided to join the fray.

I've watched from the sidelines, continuing to use my shadow campaign strategy. The longer my opponents are ignorant of my participation, the better my chances are of surprising them on election day and winning the race.

I like to think of myself as a ninja politician. Stealthy. Cunning. Good with nunchucks.

Thank You For Your Support

Monday, October 09, 2006

One of my strongest supporters, in a show of confidence, sent me a new dog chain a few days ago. It heartens me to receive such a token, and I proudly wear it whenever I attend public functions.
Most don't see it, though. I guess it's similar to a pair of lucky underwear. People don't notice that I'm wearing it, but I know, and that gives me strength.

My Heroes

The popularity of the new television show, Heroes, is misguided. Little do you humans know, but we canines have already learned to harness powers hidden deep in our biological gene sequences. Some dogs, in fact, can fly.
