Dog running for mayor in Irving, Texas

Posted: Updated:
IRVING, T.X. - A 10-year-old dog is trying to get his name on the ballot for mayor, or rather that's what his owner wants.

Fed up with political in-fighting in Irving, Texas the owner filed a petition full of valid signatures to put Dylan the dog on the ballot.

But the city said not so fast.  Dylan the dog is not a registered voter and therefore doesn't qualify.

The owner says he is not giving up.  “If you look at all the cat fighting, what better way to solve a catfight than get a dog in the mix?” said Mike Howard, Dylan’s owner.

Dylan even has his own twitter account for the campaign.
