Another bizarre story from the states. This week, a dog has become the actual mayor of a small Californian town.
We’re not even kidding.
Mayor Maximus Mighty-Dog Mueller II, or Mayor Max for short, is a golden retriever on a mission.
“How might a dog become mayor?” we hear you ask.
Well, much like the British monarchy, Mayor Max II achieved his position because of his bloodline, and ability to roll over and shake hands.
Again, we’re not kidding.
Max’s predecessor was elected as part of fundraising activity, in which all of the proceeds went to an animal rescue charity in the town. All of the candidates were animals, but it was Max’s dedication to the cause and hard campaigning that brought him his success.
After Max I had passed on, the search for his heir began.
All hail Mayor Max II.
And what a good boy he is.
