Sorry, no free grooms for elephants or donkeys!

This little Pug had a puglitical idea for the November

election: Wags on Willow would offer a free groom to

every elephant and donkey living in our hometown, the

Village of Northfield providing, of course, they had proof

of residence. Doing my dog-diligence I called the local

police. “I’m sure if we had any elephants living in

Northfield I’d know it,” said the police dispatcher. “But

donkeys are like horses and we have some horses.” “Do

you have any donkeys?” “We consider donkeys and

horses the same.” Next I called Northfield Village Hall.

“I’ve never had a question like that. We don’t have

licenses for donkeys and I know we don’t have any

elephants,” the nice lady said. So with no elephants and

maybe some donkeys we could just offer to groom

donkeys. “NO WAY,” said our team of professional

groomers. “We specialize in dogs and cats. That’s what

we are famous for, that’s why we win so many awards.

But we don’t do donkeys!” So much for my puglitical idea.

Whether you like elephants or donkeys, remember to vote

November 6. And maybe in 2020 there will be a canine

political party to compete with elephants and donkeys.

Then we can groom their mascot—a Pug of course
