Have you decided which major candidate to vote for yet? Given that this election has deteriorated to the point of silliness several times, we now bring you one possible distinction that might matter to you. (Or you might consider it more silly than any of the others.)

You may remember during the 2012 election, Romney drew criticism for strapping his dog crate onto the top of his vehicle with the dog inside during family vacations. Which of this year’s candidates has a better record on animal welfare? With thanks to PetMD, we present the following comparison.

Donald Trump:
Lives with a dog
Shut down a horse diving act in Atlantic City
Opposed Ringling Brothers’ decision to remove elephants from their circus performances
Supports his sons’ big game hunting

Hillary Clinton:
Lives with three dogs
Campaign website features a page on her policies and plans regarding animal welfare
Co-sponsored Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act of 2007 while in the Senate
Received a perfect score from the Humane Society’s Legislative Fund

Something to think about.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
