IRVING, Tx. – Move over Rob Ford, how about a dog as mayor?

A local canine did come very close to being on the may 5th election ballot, Tuesday morning, hit owner filed a petition on his terrier’s behalf.

The petition was complete with valid signatures to put his pooch’s name on the ballot.

However, the city said the dog is not a registered voter.

Without being a registered voter the dog could not qualify to be mayor.

His owner says it’s a shame, especially considering what would be a better way to solve all the cat-fighting in politics but with a dog.
