Candidate for President of the Backyard, Jack the Scottie, is “in the doghouse” according to campaign staff. The candidate reportedly made a visit to the chipmunk den in the middle of a rainstorm. Attempts to encourage the candidate to return to shelter went ignored. Jack toured the back forty, checking the branch piles before stopping back by the chipmunk den for a last word.
“It is Very Important for me to be familiar with the backyard in all its conditions,” Jack told his staff. “Especially here in the middle of winter, I wanted to give some attention to the chipmunks, an important constituency!”
Staffers were especially concerned since Jack was seen over the weekend visiting the exclusive Sylvan Salon for an extensive grooming session.
