Boston, MA-People all across America will stop today during National Pet Week to consider their devotion to own pets. Voters will also stop and think about the way that Mitt Romney treated his own pet, Seamus.
You may have heard the story. In 1983, the Romney family took a vacation and drove 12 hours to Canada from the Romney mansion in Massachusetts. During the entire trip, the family’s Irish setter, Seamus was exiled to a crate strapped on top of the family station wagon.

Neil McCarthy, the chairman of Mitt is Mean stated “When I think about my own dog, French and my cat, Mrs. Beasley, I wonder how poor Seamus felt on his long journey to Canada in a crate.” McCarthy went on to say that “Americans should take the time during National Pet Week to ask themselves, if they want a guy who treats his own dog so badly to be president.”
Brad Bannon, the spokesman for Mitt is Mean said “Mitt is a mean dude. I hope he spends some time this week during National Pet Week to think about the way he treated Seamus. But I don’t think he will”.
