Piper is prostrate with shame that Barney, the First Dog, bit a Reuters reporter's finger yesterday. Piper wants everyone to know that Barney does not speak for all Scotties. Piper is a committed liberal Scottish Terrier.
Also, the Reuters reporter failed to read the signs that Barney was in a bad mood. The sideways-flattened ears were a big clue. But Piper points out that if your party had just been whupped in a national election, you'd be in a bad mood, too. He feels the reporter should have known this.
Still, Piper wishes to apologize for this infraction, and hopes the world will not think that Barney represents the political positions of the entire breed.Tags: piper
