Campaign Tuesday

Welcome to Campaign Tuesday where I hope you will get to know me, Candy Date Arty, a bit better! 

This week we have two very important questions from Blogville.
The first question is from Bentley and Pierre over of Barking at the Bayou. They ask:
"How do you stand on belly rubs? Should they be part of every dog's day? Can you make that a law?"
 Great question guys!! I am happy to say I am very PRO belly rubs!! Personally, I like my belly rubs first thing in the morning. I jump in the big bed to snuggle with Mama and Daddy and I always show Mama my belly so she can rub and scritchy it!

  If elected I will make it a point to push a "Mandatory Belly Rub Bill" through right away!!

 On to the next question!
Madi over at Madi and Mom in NC asked:
"How many states have you visited since hitting the campaign trail and, if you can remember, which state had the nicest doggie park?"

 What a great question, Madi!! To answer part one of the question, I have put together the map below which shows the states I have visited so far this summer.

 As you can see, I have visited quite a few states,  a total of 14 in all!  Starting this Thursday (and every Thursday for a bit), Dory and I will be sharing our travels with you on Travel Thursdays!

As far as the best doggy park? I would have to say that meeting all my furiends at the BAR in Brown County State Park made Illinois the state with the best doggy park!
Make sure to tune in next Tuesday!
 ALL of the Candy Dates will be making special announcements!!

As always, feel free to ask me about anything.  Every Tuesday from now until the election I will be sharing questions, interviews and tidbits to help Blogville get to know me, Candy Date Arty,  better!!

Love the idea of mandatory belly rubs. Your travels are pretty extensive. You have several states I haven't yet covered. I aim to visit more states in the coming year. We will stay tuned as always for any upcoming news and announcements.

We're very happy with your stance on daily (or more often than that) belly rubs.

Grreat answers! I do wonder, though -- I actually am not a fan of belly rubs. Can I trade mine in for some butt scritches?
