You know we love us some puppies, but this town took it even a step further – they elected a dog to be Mayor.
The town is Rabbit Hash, Kentucky. It takes you back in time – the town is tiny, and very old school. Yes, it has a dog as mayor. “She’s very outgoing,” Bobbi Kayser said. “She has the best smile I’ve ever seen,” Jordie Bamforth said.
According to WDRB, the treat-loving, woods-exploring, good girl is named Brynneth Pawltro.
After pledging to sniff out the community’s problems with a little help from her best friend, she won the election a few months back. “There was a cat, the chicken, a donkey, a little boy,” Bamforth said. Brynneth took them all down without much more than a bark. Believe it or not, the pooch is the fourth dog mayor to be unleashed on the city. “It started in the late 1990s as a fundraiser,” said Kayser, who works with the Rabbit Hash Historical Society. “We charge you a dollar for your vote, You vote as often as you want.”
The town is so small it doesn’t need a real mayor. Usually, the money from the election goes toward town improvements, but this time it helped to repair the General Store after a devastating fire last year.
“We’ll see what politics does to her for the next four years,” Bamforth said.
Perhaps only time will tell if Brynneth has a nose for politics or if it’s back to the doghouse.
