Seamus Romney’s story goes to print – Remember Seamus!

Perhaps it was only a matter of time given the story’s staying power, but the tale of Seamus and his famous ride on the roof of the Romney family car is about to be immortalized in literature. “DOG ON THE ROOF! On the Road with Mitt and Mutt” debuts June 19. The illustrated book chronicles the car trip that launched an advocacy group and a decade of irritating questions for Mitt Romney.

Mitt Takes Lit Hit

That infamous and seemingly immortal tale of Mitt Romney crating his dog on the roof of his car during a 14-hour road trip has already weaseled its way into the narrative of the 2012 campaign and is now splashing its way onto America’s bookshelves.

The Romney family’s now-deceased Irish setter Seamus’ story is being cemented in history in a 64-page satirical book, “Dog on the Roof,” set to be released June 19.

“Politics is hard for most people, including me, to keep their head around,” [Scott] Crider [founder of Dogs Against Romney] said. “Big discussions about universal health care and the debt issues and all these things are really big and complex for busy people to really be able to wrap their heads around.”

“This thing about Seamus cuts right through all that,” he said.

And while the story has already incited pet lovers, pestered the presidential candidate and punctuated attack ads, a national book tour devoted solely to propagating the decades-old event will likely reinvigorate the Seamus saga, which Romney has tried to put to sleep.

“Now for the first time, here is the completely true—and only mildly embellished— shaggy-dog story of Seamus Romney,” reads the books description. “It is the inside (well . . . overhead) look at the Man Who Would Be President and the wild ride that’s sweeping—and bewildering—the nation.”

The book’s intention is to be humorous, and it certainly sounds that way, but many take the story seriously, namely Sean [sic] Crider, the founder of Dogs Against Romney. Crider told ABC News that the “Dog on the Roof” story shows Romney’s “overall appearance of meanness.”

“It’s a character illuminating anecdote about Romney for a lot of people,” Crider told ABC News. “A lot of people are just pure dog lovers and see what he did as being abusive; others see it as a little window about what kind of guy he is.”

Dog on the Roof, for those interested, will be available on bookshelves next month.
