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.

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.

I love bookshelves. It's not the books or the shelves that I love per se. It's what bookshelves can do to the messy basement in campaign headquarters that I love. My basement used to be a disaster - campaign files everywhere, old receipts, long-lost doggie toys - but I put my paw down. Enough was enough.

I assigned two of my campaign aides the task of organizing my basement. Their solution involved the implementation of numerous bookcases. Now the basement is clear, and I can run off some of the built-up stress that my campaign bid generates. See, the basement is carpeted, and we all know that carpeting is a dog's best friend.
