Ann Romney, laughingly, describes Seamus being hosed off when he coated himself and the top of the car with diarrhea. She says the dog would see the crate on top of the car and ‘go crazy.’ I’ll bet he did, yes. As a matter of fact it sounds like so much fun, I wonder if everyone will start transporting their beloved pets this way? And why not the kids too?
“The dog loved it,” Ann Romney [laughed]. “He would see that crate and, you know, he would, like, go crazy because he was going with us on vacation. It was to me a kinder thing to bring him along than to leave him in the kennel for two weeks.”
Adding to the left’s narrative that Romney had little compassion for the animal is a detail from the 1983 trip that Ann Romney confirmed to Sawyer. The dog became sick, defecating all over itself and the windshield of the car, leading Romney to hose them both off before they continued on the drive to Canada.
“Once, he — we traveled all the time — and he ate the turkey on the counter. I mean, he had the runs,” Ann Romney said, laughing, as she explained how the dog got diarrhea.
For reference, here’s a video of what it’s really like for a dog in a kennel strapped to the roof of a car on a freeway. Turn the volume down, because it’s very loud up there. About 120 dB. — source: Little Green Footballs
