NASHVILLE, TN. Jack the Scottie, presumptive candidate for President of the Back Yard, called a press conference late last night to announce his choice for Vice President. In a surprise move, he has picked Arya, his Campaign Manager.
Arya the Porch Dog is a dog of mystery. She showed up on the porch at the age of 3 months. Her biological beginnings and breed are unknown at this time. She is known as a loyal, fairly obedient dog, intelligent, and funny. In addition to previously serving as Jack’s campaign manager, Arya plays the role of enforcer and announcer for the back yard and the house.
“Arya has the energy and drive needed for such a position,” the candidate said. “She is on the go, go, go, nearly all the time. And then she just falls asleep in the middle of the sitting room floor. That’s the kind of pup we need on the ticket. I’m laid back. She’s fired up.”
The Puppy Party will hold its Back Yard Convention this weekend. It is likely that Jack’s candidacy will be confirmed.
The Rodent Party holds its convention next weekend. presumptive nominee, Mr. P. Nut Squirrel is expected to be confirmed as the candidate. There have been no leaks from his campaign as to his choice of running mate, although it is expected to be another squirrel rather than a mouse, rat, or marmot.
