BUSH & KERRY BETTER KISS DOGS BEFORE BABIES.
The company POLITICAL PET TOYS has just launched today pet chew toys of George.W.Bush & Senator John Kerry for this year presidential election.
POLITICAL PET TOYS an Australian company (yes Aussie company so there “ok” to buy we are on your side) started 2 years ago with the range of Bush, Bin Laden, Saddam, I.R.$. Taxman, Bill & Hilary Clinton as pet chew toys.
Bush & Kerry can forget about national polls for this years presidential election as the only poll that really matter is on www.politicalpettoys.com this is because 62% of all U.S. households own at least one pet which equates to a staggering 64.2 million homes.
On these figures pet owners would have to be the biggest voting block in the U.S. today, so both of these politicians better take note and start kissing America’s pets rather than there babies, simply put there are just way more pets than babies in U.S. households today.
The creator of POLITICAL PET TOYS Tony Russell has sent a Kerry chew toy to “Barney” the Presidents Scottish terrier and a Bush chew toy has been sent to Senator Kerry (we do hope he is a dog lover too).
Although Democrats and Republicans will want their dogs to rip these toys to shreds, it is not possible in the literal sense, as each chew toy is made from a PVC-RUBBER compound so as to be soft on the animals gums and will last for years.
POLITICAL PET TOYS can be purchased online at www.politicalpettoys.com for $12.95 and will also be stocked in pet stores across the U.S. through our national distributors in the U.S. Hobbs & Dobbs, Inc in Los Angeles.
