Mitt Romney Tied His Dog On To The Roof Of His Car?

Did Mitt Romney really tie his dog to the roof of his car?  Yes, it is actually true.  As the Boston Globe first reported, when Mitt Romney took his family for a vacation up to Ontario in 1983, the family dog was put in a car carrier and tied to the roof for the entire 12 hour trip.  The Irish Setter, Seamus, apparently did not have such a great time sitting on top of the station wagon as it charged down the road at 60 miles an hour.  At one point Tagg, Romney's eldest son, noticed brown liquid slowly dripping down the back window.  It turns out that traveling on the roof caused Seamus to have diarrhea.

So what did Romney do?

The following is how the Boston Globe described what happened next....

“As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway. It was a tiny preview of a trait he would grow famous for in business: emotion-free crisis management.”

He just hosed old Seamus down and stuck him right back up in the car carrier.

No wonder Seamus ran away from the Romney family shortly thereafter.

Now the rest of the world is making fun of Romney over this.

The following is one hilarious animated video from Taiwan that was recently produced concerning this episode....
