EDITOR'S REVIEW: Senator made a name for himself with a series of negative encounters with many dog enthusiasts. When I went out to see for myself just what kind of dog Senator was, I was surprised to meet such a stunningly well behaved and friendly dog. He was very approachable, wagged his tail enthusiastically, and barked excitedly, though never too much. Although he was a bit dirty, one could argue that Senator is out there truly enjoying life. I see big things in store for young Senator.

SON OF A BITCH.
Senator is a very bad boy!

I adopted Senator from the local pound because he looked like a nice dog and was so sweet and friendly to my two children (Jessica and Taylor). Throughout the first day he behaved well, and was very loving and affectionate. Then Taylor, who had learned about Pavlov's dogs from a TV program, decided to ring a bell and see if Senator would salivate. I thought it was a cute idea so I got a bell out of the closet and let him ring it. As soon as Taylor rung that bell, Senator squatted down and defecated on my carpet. I was a horrified but figured it was an accident.
It was not an accident. Some sick person trained Senator to defecate at the sound of the bell. I had to throw the bell away because Taylor, as if possessed by some Devilish spirit, kept finding the bell and ringing it. I thought he was going to suck the life out of that dog and permanently ruin my carpets.
After two days I decided Senator was not the dog for my children and made him live outside in the backyard until the next day, when the pound would be open again. Senator ran away sometime in the night, but not before leaving one final mess to clean up. He got into my children's clubhouse and left a large pile of feces in the center.
Taylor and Jessica cried but they understood that this dog had a sick spirit and would corrupt them. I was relieved to see him gone.
I gave Senator 1 and a half bones because while he is a bad dog, he is one of God's creations and therefore has some worth. I just don't think any of us will ever find it!

i dont know were the nfo about senitor and tenacity came from but i have been a fan of tenacity for years and she is a good dog. she would not hook up with a smelly dogg like senitar!!! tenacity is always wearing ribbons and is friendly 2 everyone. senitor is mean and nasty.
if it is true then I guess there must be more 2 senitor or tenacity would not stoop 2 that level.
I LUV U TENACITY!!
SENATOR IS RUSTY'S PROTÉGÉ!!

Seriously, how dumb are you people? Senator has been part of Rusty's pack for over a year. Many of us in the BarkWire community know full well Rusty is grooming Senator as his successor. I cite numerous sightings of the two together, as well as the December 3rd meeting in Elmwood Park, where Rusty, Senator, Helmsman, Escapee, and Dagger terrorized people for 3 hours with barking and strange, unsettling behavior. It was even in the papers for Pete's sake! Some of you people obviously don't belong here if you can't even keep up to date with the most obvious events in the dog community.
Senator, like Rusty, knows how to put on a good show to lure people into a false sense of security. He can act like the greatest dog in the world long enough to fool you. Then, while your guard is down, he'll do something unseemly and run away laughing.
If you see Senator, I suggest you do what I would do. Turn away and avoid him. Do not give him attention, because that's all he wants. You'd be better off investing your time giving attention to one of the more awesome dogs in this community, like Ambition, Dumpling, Boat, or Dash. Let's not forget BiGDOG'S #1 favorite, Panzer.

‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.
Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
No lifeguard on duty. Maze run at your own risk.
