Do you own your pet?

The Denver Post has an article about "animal suffrage".

It comes up with this dazzling quote:

In a handful of cities, Boulder being the first, people with pets are officially termed guardians - as opposed to owners - of their animals.

A while back, I proposed that a black bear could be elected mayor of Boulder. I guess this isn't so far fetched after all.

Animals will eventually win the right to vote in Boulder. Then the "guardians" will be left to interpret how their Mutt-American cohabitant would vote. Naturally a black bear (or Bella the Cow, or Timmy's gold fish, or Smokey The Bear) will be put on the ballot and win by a land-slide.

Un-Believable!! Once Boulders pets are granted the right to vote, maybe the citizens can make a covenant with trees, and start worshiping Evergreens!!
