Alexandria Ocasio Cortez got herself a puppy and PETA is pissed. Good for them. I hope they find a quiet room and work it out. As for the pup, he remains nameless. Yes, she gendered him and no one at GLADD seems to care.
She continued: “Our pup (who shall be named) became very attached to us on the rid home, and would whimper every time I went to bed for longer than 10-15 minutes. So I spent the night next to his crate, and he didn’t whimper again. We won’t make it a habit, but the first night or two is usually an exception. The good news is that he really enjoys his crate! He’s made it his own little bedroom, moves the blankets around, and goes there to hang out on his own.”
She put him in a cage! Like at the Border!?
Is this an act?
We are awaiting definitive proof that this is not a stage dog or that “he” is not on her campaign payroll. Until then, there is still the matter of a name.
“He doesn’t have a name yet!” she wrote in a later Instagram Story update, asking for suggestions from her followers. “We are thinking something Star Trek related or Bronx/Queens/NYC/social good related.”
French Bulldogs remind me of Harcourt Fenton Mudd (I, Mudd, season 2 Ep. 8). AOC could just call him HFM. Wait, AOC is a Trek fan? Well, no money, everything’s paid for, everyone works voluntarily for the good of the Federation. I guess it works.
Back in the real world, where that will not work, she might want to stick to something closer to home. Lenin, Marx, Trotsky. Mini AOC, oops, that’s taken.
Feel free to provide your own suggestions. Try not to be vulgar. We don’t have a lot of rules but that’s one of them.
As for the dog, those little buggers are cute as hell. I hope she takes good care of it. By which I mean better than she treats taxpayers.
Note: there is some debate about the pedigree now that Peta has weighed in. We suspect that she and her media will claim it is a mix. Don’t believe them. If it were a rescue that would have been the lede.
