A dog for mayor?

As a dog, running the house is just part of my job.  Running a city, though, I am not so sure about that!  Well, Genny would like to be elected mayor of the Canadian city of Clarington.  Her person, Marven Whidden tried to register Genny as a candidate, but was told she could not run becuase she is a dog.  They have not ruled out a write in campaign.  According to the Toronto Star, "while kissing babies may not be her thing, she does a mean face lick."

You can read more about the saga on Whidden's blog, where the pair has received both criticism and support.  They have created quite a stir!
