Jack’s Tracks: Running for Governor

October 11th, 2010

Greetings my fellow New Mexicans.  I, Travelin’ Jack, am here today to make an important announcement.  This November, we are going to be engaged in one of the most heated gubernatorial campaigns ever….in fact SOME might say it will be a dog-eat-dog campaign!

I—Travelin’ Jack—was pondering this… and all MY ‘pet’  projects and I thought to myself Doggone it…I should be included in this dog-race…so to speak! (woof!) After all… I have MY own campaign platforms that touch every New Mexican…just like the fine two ladies running for Governor.

So..without further ado, I am here today to throw my PAW into the race…yes, it is true!

I—Travelin’ Jack—do so announce today that I AM YOUR 2010 INDEPENDENT Dog-ernatorial Candidate for Governor of New Mexico!

I’m ready to hit the campaign trail to share my campaign platform ….and here are the cornerstones of my platform:

1. (Social Welfare)

Spay & Neuter All Pets

2.  (Economic Stimulus)

Travel New Mexico with your Pet

3.  (Healthcare)

Obtain Medical Insurance for Your Pet

4.  (Border Control)

Adopt A Shelter-Pet/Save A Life/ Support Animal Humane (stop those 4 footed kids from crossin’ the border—give ‘em a home!)

So  there you have it….straight from the dog’s mouth!

And doggone it…come election day……

REMEMBER….a Vote for Jack is a Vote for Animal Welfare!

And as Gov-ner Travelin’ Jack…..I WON’T disappoint you…I dog-guarantee!

Jack’s Tracks – Pet Friendly in Carlsbad, New Mexico

Travelin’ Jack here!  Roving bull-dog reporter from the road! My job: checking out pet-friendly spots around New Mexico. This week’s destination: pet-friendly places in Carlsbad, New Mexico.

Checked out the four-footed action here, and bully if I didn’t find it at Ocotillo Nature Trail, right near Living Desert State Park and Zoo. We hit the trail on a foggy morning and blimey took me right back to the old homeland, England. But it was not so foggy that I couldn’t explore the area. Not this curious canine, nope!

The trail winds through this wonderland of cacti – but watch out – keep those feet and nose on the trail. Nope, no needle extractions for this ol’ bulldog! After a nice, long hike, I spied a great resting spot at one of the handy benches along the trail. Hey, there’s nothin’ sayin’ a bully can’t enjoy the view just as the fog is beginning to lift!

Ah yes, another great find by this roving canine reporter! Carlsbad is definitely a great place to explore. Bee-YOU-ti-FUL!  Signing off for now.

-Travelin’ Jack, bulldog reporter! And Bully to you!
