Political Poop (Bags)

Los Angeles company Metro Paws has launched its limited edition poop bags for the US Presidential election.

The biodegradable bags feature cartoon images of Joe Biden and Donald Trump. A Metro Paws spokesperson told a local newspaper that the bags were originally created in 2012 with the intention of engaging voters and encouraging people to vote. Bags were produced for the 2012 and 2016 presidential elections.

At present, it is reported that the Trump bags are the better seller…

You can buy your Smear Campaign poop bags from Metro Paws website here and from selected independent pet stores.

Good golly, Miss Molly

Andrew Neil, co-host of the BBC’s This Week, has started bringing his Golden Retriever, Miss Molly, to the set.  She’s sat on the sofa next to guests on the late-night political commentary programme.  She even had a snooze in the lap of guest David Starkey.

Taking Miss Molly to the set opens up a whole new category of dog-friendly workplaces and it’s great to see the dog welcomed onto a televised show.  In my opinion, it helps to create awareness of dog-friendly workplaces.

Neil has suggested that Miss Molly might become a bit of a fixture on the show, although not a permanent one. “We probably broke every health and safety rule in the book but she is very well-behaved.”
