We voted yesterday

Posted by Francesca

Yesterday was Election Day in the United States and we animals at the farm, decided to have an election of our own for Farm Pet Government.  We chose two positions to fill - Councilpet at Large and First Selectpet.  These offices sound very important and there were six of us who were running.  Of course, we Frenchies were very confident that one of us would win and we cast our vote fair and square.  However, we discovered that there was one among us who caused a bit of trouble and we may be demanding a re-election.  The word 'smug' was thrown around yesterday.  Who do you think is the smug one at the farm?

2-As you can see, Clive the donkey, Meindert the horse, Bartok the cat, Francesca the Frenchie, Sharkey the Frenchie, and Vivaldi the cat were all hopeful contenders.  Why, we the Frenchies, were running against each other, we just don't know.

  • Hey Vivaldi I'll vote for you! but don't rig the election, this is what those humans are trying to get past...ahhhh if everyone just had common sense and things where fair, eh!
    I love the "I Voted Today" tags, they sure look cute on your heads Francesca and Sharkey!

  • Hello Ladies,
    So proud of you both for voting yesterday. However, I am sure there will be a re-election due to that fur ball, Vivaldi. He gives cats a bad name. He is very dishonest. You two should be in charge and he should never be allowed to vote again, due to his criminal background. Be strong my beauties. Justice will prevail
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Franny and Sharkey, all you have to do is demand a recount and Vivaldi will be caught red-pawed, since he made sure that the ballots were shredded! C'mon, girls!

  • F & S
    You should have taken out that fur ball when you had the chance, they are nothing but troule. I'm telling you they make great play toys.

    My mom voted yesterday and she seemed very happy reading the paper this morning so I'm going to assume that the people she voted for won. I'm glad this election thing is over TOO many commericals and people calling our house all the time. What ever happened to the DO NOT CALL list. We had Bill Clinton, John McCain even that Palin chick calling the house - thank God the elections are over.

    So tonight is the big game. I'll have my Phillies shirt on sitting next to mom cheering on our team. We have Pedro taking the mound tonight - I really like him. I'd love to see him shut out those Yankees - then we can tell them WHO'S THEIR DADDY!!!!

    Go Phillies!!!!!

  • I would have voted for Vivaldi also, but i think it was kinda sneeky for him to do what he did! Take it from a fellow cat...we are smug and we LOVE it!
    You frenchies should stop chasing us around and barking at us. : )

  • Hello Friends,

    Did Vivaldi throw the election? Shame on that beautiful cat! We all know who the real elected officials are on your farm!

    Well, Francesca and Sharkey, it just goes to show you how dirty politics can be--even if the election is centered around a small locality. Don't become disenfranchised, too many humans have that market cornered. Instead, hold your heads up high, know that you ran a good race, and remember you two are in control anyway!

  • I CANNOT TAKE IT!

    TODAY'S BLOG IS THE

    BEST

    ONE

    EVER!! !! !!

    I am simply losing it, reading your blog today, girls! When you mentioned 'smug', I figured one of the cats on the ballot was going to take the rap, but oh, the twist of furry fate! HisFluffinessVivaldi is a c-l-e-v-e-r kittiekittie, isn't he?!

    The poses today...the captions...PRICELESS!

    I loved every minute!

    =^..^=

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    That Vivaldi sure does shed light on the phrase, “That Darned Cat.” And to think that Vivaldi didn’t think about a recount of the votes. That just shows how dumb a cat can be. Maybe I should be saying how smart cats are because mommy often tells people I have a personality just like a cat. I’ll do things when I want to do them and not until I’m good and ready. I guess sleeping a lot goes along with that also. Speaking of which, I must take care of something right now. ZZZZZZZZZ
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • True ameri-pups! Good job! Make sure you get some extra treats today.

  • Being an only dog, I get all the votes for Global Pup in Charge... but, get this, I actually accompanied then yesterday at the polls in my special tote. Nobody knew I was there, but I reminded them to vote for the Green Acres in our township!

  • Hi Girl Friends, This sure was another fun blog. I'm so glad that you voted and I could tell how proud you were. In the mean time, I sure would love to get to know that very intelligent cat, Vivaldi. He certainly did a great job of fooling you two girls! So now, is he the new animal boss on the farm?! I sure would love to play with him and I think he would soon learn that I'm a pretty nice guy and that I love cats. You girls are so much fun. Thanks for sharing you life with all of us. Love, Dudley Do Right xoxoxo

  • Oh Franny & Sharkey and that that sneaky beautiful Vivaldi,what a fun blog today.
    I enjoyed watching the procedure of how you VOTE on the farm, I love all animals and the mini donkeys and frenchies all get my vote, the cats well I guess!
    Voting is so important and we animals need to make a good example for our humans to follow LOL!

    I say recount those ballots LOL!

  • I'll never look at a shredder again without having the picture of the ballots going into it pop into my head. Too adorable!
