Debate Tuesday - Questions from Blogville and Happy Birthday Bilbo!!

As we get closer to summer, we thought it might be a good time to take a break from our regularly scheduled debates and take some time to do some individual campaigning!  So this week will be the final debate until the beginning of September!

 This week, we are pleased to answer some questions asked by our very own Blogville Community!!  To shake things up a bit, we will be answering them separately on our own Blogs, so make sure to visit:

Lexi over at Lexi the Schnauzer
Christmas over at Paw Province

If you asked a question and don't see it here, make sure to let us know in the comments and I will make sure to answer it for you!!

Without any further ado, here are some of the questions we have been asked so far!

1-Do you think we can publish some guidelines/rules/mandates on flashy beasts at naptime??
 I think this is a great idea and, if elected, I will set up a committee to draft a "regulated and approved flashy beast schedule and compensation amendment" to add to the Blogville Bill of Rights!!

2-Since you are vertically challenged (like me) we are wondering what your 'platform' of choice will be when you are at the podium?
I am a strong believer in "Getting By With a Little Help From a Friend" and hope I can keep Blogville a place where you can always find a friend!!


3-What is your platform for Mayor?
I think Blogville is a pretty great place the way it is, so my main platform is to keep Blogville a place where we can meet new friends and have fun!!

4-Here is a three part question regarding kitty kats:
a.What are your opinion on cats? Friends, foes, or supreme masters??
When our Angel Addie was around, Dory and Bilbo agree she was the Supreme Master. I have never had a Kitty Cat before (although I have asked Mama repeatedly) but I do have many kitty cat friends and regularly appear on Sunday Selfies! 

b. Are you planning anything to get our hoomans to share more of their food? Specifically of da MEATZ variety, but really anything (eggcept for vegetables which I has heard some peeples ackshually eat).
As I  rarely get people food, I am a BIG SUPPORTER OF BACON FOR EVERYONE!!  If elected, I will TRY to have humans share...but we may have to form a rebellion.  I would put Travis the Lone Star cat  in charge because he is the Baconater of Blogville for sure!!

c. Do you support the idea of offishually changing Saturday to "Caturday?"

I have no problem changing Saturday to Caturday, as long as we all are allowed to participate in Caturday festivities!

5-What will you do to help ensure international residents feel part of the Blogville community?
 I view Blogville as an all inclusive community, which has residents from all over the world. I would love to see a "World Holiday List" to make sure that Howlidays around the world are celebrated!

Make sure to stop by here every Tuesday through the summer (because Dory SAYS I can have Tuesdays to campaign) and look for our appearance on "The Dog Dish" this summer on BTV (Blogville Television)!!

I want to end today's post by wishing my Brother Bilbo a 

You're going to share your cake, right???

With your answers to question #4, you have convinced us that you are the best candidate. We do have another baconater on-line. In fact he is the King of Bacon. If you don't know him, go to www.onespoiledcat.wordpress.com and ask for Sammy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Murphy said...

You have some excellent answers and we were glad Jakey was lending a paw on the vertically challenged issue. We think an international holiday would be great.

Your Pals,
