On Monday, February 1, 2016, at 2:00 PM (CST), a special caucus for the dogs will be held at Just Dogs PlayCare, a dog daycare, boarding, and training center in Coralville, Iowa. Dogs will be choosing the winners of the presidential caucus for both the Republicans and Democrats. Said owner Carol Besler-Snell, “I just wasn’t sure the people of Iowa could get it right, so I wanted to give the dogs a say.”
How the Doggie Caucus Works
Because the dogs don’t seem to be committing to any political party, we are allowing them to participate in both the Democrat and Republican caucuses. Each dog attending Just Dogs PlayCare on Feb. 1 will choose a treat in front of a candidate’s name. (Each candidate is represented by a common breed of dog. JDPC owners say the breeds were chosen at random, except for possibly the chow chow.) For dogs who are pigs and eat all the treats, video coverage will indicate “who” they ate first. Results will be posted on Just Dogs PlayCare’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Just-Dogs-PlayCare-Inc-124440110911666/ .
When asked if he thought the dogs had a favorite candidate, JDPC co-owner Brad Snell said they like several of the contenders but may be leaning toward Sanders. “After all, in dog years, he is only 10-½ .” One employee commented that holding the caucus at 2:00 PM might attract media attention. “Gives the reporters something to do besides drink before the human caucuses start at 7:00 PM.” Another commented that it would be a good diversion from scooping poop.
