In a little mountain town called Divide in Colorado, Pa Kettle, a bloodhound, has been elected mayor!
He won more votes than the ten other animals running for the unofficial title in an online race.
So what does a Colorado dog mayor do? Try to legalize and tax catnip? LOLz!
The town doesn't actually have a mayor so the dog's political responsibilities are

While most politicians who were running for election this week were busy on Election Day campaigning and hoping to win, Florida councilwoman Sherri Myers spent the day with her dog.
Apparently Myers didn’t think she had a chance of winning Pensacola’s District 2 race, so she decided to take Election Day off and spend it with her pooch who sadly is suffering from throat cancer and not expected to live much longer.
Myers turned off her cellphone and spent the day on a day trip to Alabama with her ailing dog.
Wednesday morning the 68-year-old attorney found out she narrowly defeated her opponent.
Sounds like she had a wonderful day at least.

This election was successful for animals with the passage of Prop B and the rejection of Prop 109.
Proposition B was passed in Missouri, making tougher rules concerning puppy mills. Missouri is known as the puppy mill capital, and they are working to rid themselves of that name.
Prop 109 was rejected in Arizona, which if passed would have taken away the rights of citizens to introduce ballot initiatives to protect wildlife. OMG!
Good thing people made good decisions on these two propositions.
There was however, some trouble in North Dakota with the rejection of Measure 2, which would have banned the canned hunting of deer and elk trapped inside fenced pens.
At least some things were done! We guess a little at a time still counts!!
