We have been watching so many debates on TV that me and Arrow decided to have our own debate.
Arrow: Are you better off now than you were before I moved in? I think so. Your life is never dull. It’s full of surprises. You never know what will happen with me around. (Or what you will find on the rug.) I know how to chew outside the box. And inside too.
Deefor: I am the experienced dog. With me you had two years of positive licking and playing. A love fest. You come home to a warm welcome. Not a smelly one.
Arrow: If you want a continuation of the same old thing, vote for Deefor. But if you want a president who can run fast and doesn’t growl at everyone, vote for me. Deefor may be all love on the home front, but he’s no diplomat in the doggie park. A vote for me is a vote for world peace.
Deefor: These days, you need a strong president. I may be small (like Kucinich) but I know how to stand up to the big dogs of the world. You won’t find me rolling over all the time. Or barking my head off. And I can’t be bribed with any old treat.
Arrow: True, I love treats. But I don’t give special favors to humans ‘cause they give me treats. Unlike my opponent, Deefor, who will lick his way to China if you smooch him. And China is dangerous for doggies.
Deefor: I think the choice is clear. Elect me. You know where I stand. And sit. And sleep. Don’t vote for a dangerous radical who doesn’t even know his own name half the time.
Arrow: Arf. Arf. Arf.
