Rick Perry Did Something To the President’s Dog

by Jack Stuef

'We're both mammals, Bro, right?'
This dog always seemed like a real asshole to us. But now he has that look of sheer terror in his eyes like a man came up behind him and, well, interfered. WHAT DID YOU DO, PERRY?

We looked at more of Rick Perry’s Twitter. It seems he mostly uses it to post photos of dogs:

Hey look, a dog.

More dogs.

Another dog.


Black dogs.

Brown dog.

Hey look, a dog.

You know, governor stuff. [Twitter]

Uh-oh, time for ASPCA: SVU….

Barbara_i March 4, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Ah, ya idiot! The peanut butter goes on you and not the dog. Enjoy your Jiff Ricky!
(I am giving myself a time out for this)

EdFlintstone March 4, 2011 at 2:09 pm

Jesus christ Rick Santorum was right.

OC_Surf_Serf March 4, 2011 at 2:09 pm

Growing up, Ricky did always bragged about all the tail he got…

Dr_Zoidberg March 4, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Those dogs are now suffering from PTSD.

kittenbomb March 4, 2011 at 2:13 pm

Bo’s like “He’s going to choke me. I’m telling you guys, this asshole’s going to choke me. Where’s the fucking Secret Service when you need them?”

BaldarTFlagass March 4, 2011 at 2:14 pm

All dogs are fascists. I mean, anyone here ever seen a police cat?

MoeDeLawn March 4, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Ya got it wrong, Baldar. Ambulance driver Walt Disney taught me that all cats are evil.

SorosBot March 4, 2011 at 2:32 pm

Yes, in fact one that was assassinated:

Rusik the cat was recruited by police at a checkpoint in the Stavropol region, bordering the Caspian Sea, to uncover illegal cargoes of the endangered fish.

Police believe it was a contract killing, Russian Ren television reported.

The cat was hit by a car in which he had found smuggled sturgeon some time before, the station reported.

Failure_Artist March 4, 2011 at 5:33 pm

Wow, post-Soviet Russia is tough even on cats.

blogslut March 4, 2011 at 2:16 pm

So which dog is the one he was defending when he blasted that evil coyote and left the carcass to rot?

BaldarTFlagass March 4, 2011 at 2:16 pm

All of them, Katie.

SorosBot March 4, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Obama should be careful in letting his political enemies around Bo; particularly keep Huckabee's kids away.

Stir fried in the popcorn popper.

undeterredbyreality March 4, 2011 at 2:18 pm

He's got a basset hound in there! A freakin' BASSET HOUND!

What the hell is a basset anyway?

trampndirtdown March 4, 2011 at 10:31 pm

Tbogg would like it.

freakishlywrong March 4, 2011 at 2:21 pm

I freakin' love those little hotdogs.

chicken_thief March 4, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Well done, with mustard.

KenLayIsAlive March 4, 2011 at 2:22 pm

What a thick, healthy, shiny pelt!

And those dogs look pretty good too!

Come here a minute March 4, 2011 at 2:22 pm

Perry likes dogs because they don't mind when he runs his fingers through their hair, or calls them bitches.

Lascauxcaveman March 4, 2011 at 6:09 pm

Or spends a half an hour licking their privates.

(Heck, it saves them work.)

freakishlywrong March 4, 2011 at 2:23 pm

I fuck dogs. #assholes


Rick Perry

undeterredbyreality March 4, 2011 at 2:24 pm

"Durh–this baseball bat is my penis, har har, and the guv just shat out a mulatto dog!

Gopherit March 4, 2011 at 2:24 pm

It's widely known that Rick is not a fan of pussies.

nounverb911 March 4, 2011 at 2:30 pm

He's straight?

nounverb911 March 4, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Bo's walking funny now.

MinAgain March 4, 2011 at 2:31 pm

You know what we'd be thinking, if he was posting pics of little kids on the playground…

KenLayIsAlive March 4, 2011 at 4:51 pm

"I bet Grant Storms would really like to see these"?

SayItWithWookies March 4, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Where's Blondi?

Limeylizzie March 4, 2011 at 4:00 pm

Oh Wookies with the Hitler reference, .

fartknocker March 4, 2011 at 2:38 pm

OK, Rick the Prick likes dogs. Big deal. He also likes to shoot coyotes with his .38 while jogging on the trails surrounding his $9,900 month rental property which I am helping pay for since can't seem to get his mansion rebuilt.

And yes, Rick is still an asshole.

nounverb911 March 4, 2011 at 2:42 pm

As soon as it's finished, the anarchists will just torch it again.

HistoriCat March 4, 2011 at 6:54 pm

Rick has a lot of cronies – gotta make sure they all get a piece of the rebuilding action.

trampndirtdown March 4, 2011 at 10:35 pm

Yeeeaaah Ricky shot a coyote with a pistol, I'll believe it when I see it. Texan brag much?

ShaveTheWhales March 6, 2011 at 2:14 am

I think it had, like auto-LIDAR targeting or something.

MiniMencken March 4, 2011 at 2:45 pm

Black lab. Check. Yellow Lab. Check. Chocolate Lab. Check. Wait! Where is the Meth Lab in that series?

nounverb911 March 4, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Bristol's house.

"Oh, I see Scraps is a boy dog."

Schmannnity March 4, 2011 at 3:02 pm

Which one is the First Lady of Texas?

andrewdrinker March 4, 2011 at 3:03 pm

Doesn't the governor of Texas only work 140 days per year anyway? Lots of time to bond with every single dog in the state of Texas…

chicken_thief March 4, 2011 at 3:11 pm

Ricky seems to favor the brownz and blacks…

Hatrabbit March 4, 2011 at 3:12 pm

Luckily, Perry was able to 'Secede' before the cameras got there.

Chillwaver March 4, 2011 at 3:14 pm

"Is Rick Perry gonna have to choke a bitch?"

Extemporanus March 4, 2011 at 3:29 pm

It's nice to see Governor Petter finally showing some unwelcome fur affection for something other than people.

jim89048 March 4, 2011 at 7:37 pm

Beat me to it. By 4 hours.

Extemporanus March 4, 2011 at 3:31 pm

The little guy he's teabagging in the fourth photo down looks embarrassed as all get out.

donner_froh March 4, 2011 at 3:33 pm

The Secret Service agent who was in charge of Bo's protection detail is now heading up the office at Bagram in Iraq, checking the orange jumpsuits of detainees for contraband.

BerkeleyBear March 4, 2011 at 4:23 pm

Should be hand checking the fecal matter of detainees for contraband.

jus_wonderin March 4, 2011 at 3:47 pm

I have a doxie too. Loving. Willfull. But, I'd rather have an independant one that the dependant ones.

jus_wonderin March 4, 2011 at 3:50 pm

"Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, Rick Perry, blah, blah, blah."

ShaveTheWhales March 6, 2011 at 2:16 am

Larson ftw.

moralturpentine March 4, 2011 at 3:50 pm

His personal peanut butter budget must be huge, though I imagine he somehow manages to charge it to the state budget.

jus_wonderin March 4, 2011 at 3:52 pm

The Bassett is laughing its head off at Rick's Trucknutz.

Limeylizzie March 4, 2011 at 4:02 pm

I love that BoBama dog, he is adorabe, but he looks as if he's been rogered swiftly from behind in that picture.

BerkeleyBear March 4, 2011 at 4:24 pm

Given how he normally behaves (Bo, not Perry) he didn't appreciate the man trying to hold him back.

Amo_of_Bogio March 4, 2011 at 6:10 pm

Just love that… "rogered' hee hee

KenLayIsAlive March 4, 2011 at 6:55 pm

It's not often you see a dog looking completely mortified.

johnnymeatworth March 4, 2011 at 4:09 pm

Do I sense a Blingee contest in the offing?

emmelemm March 4, 2011 at 5:09 pm

The dachshund is the cutest one (imho).

lochnessmonster March 4, 2011 at 5:21 pm

Will we be seeing Rick Perry on Animal Hoarders soon?

June_Cleaver2.0 March 4, 2011 at 5:54 pm

"This dog always seemed like a real asshole to us…"

Bo is such a sweet dog! You can tell he is really Michelle's dog. I go searching the youtubes for Bo stuff. I fell in love with him last year when he hung around Michelle's legs for an hour when she received guests Jan 20, 2010. Love him. (But my dog of choice is Collie/Sheltie.)

trampndirtdown March 4, 2011 at 10:37 pm

That was pretty awesome video, peoples reactions to the FLOTUS are cool to watch.

DoktorZoom March 4, 2011 at 6:33 pm

Aww, who's a sucky governor? Is it YOU? Is it YOU?

PublicLuxury March 4, 2011 at 7:02 pm

I don't like him touching those innocent annimals like he is. I'm calling the ASPCA. Fuckin' Freak

JoeBiteme March 4, 2011 at 7:42 pm

The fact that he obviously likes dogs makes me hate him a bit less. Please remove this at once.

Troubledog March 4, 2011 at 8:27 pm

It's like when Newt got all sentimental at Easter. For a second, it was like he was a human with feelings and needs. I hate the cognitive dissonance.

iburl March 4, 2011 at 11:00 pm

Maybe this can offset your temporary pangs of human compassion…

Perry wants to lay off 1/3 of Texas teachers… 100,000 teachers in all:

Vouchers anyone?

JoeBiteme March 5, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Yup, that did it. I'm over it.

ttommyunger March 4, 2011 at 8:38 pm

I see a shallow, heartless fuck using dogs as a prop to soften his image. Nothing to see here, move along.

Sophist[ArsPunetica] March 4, 2011 at 10:45 pm

We looked at more of Rick Perry’s Twitter. It seems he mostly uses it to post photos of dogs:

Making it one of the most coherent and least embarrassing republican authored twitter feeds on the net.

iburl March 4, 2011 at 10:52 pm

It's pretty relaxing with the dogs, out on the ranch. So much better than that downtown, cramped governor's mansion anyway. Plus you get to shoot wild animals on the driveway. Yup.

BarackMyWorld March 4, 2011 at 11:26 pm

Smells like Up Dog in here.

mumbly_joe March 5, 2011 at 12:09 am

I think it's safe to assume that Bo is angling to be Rick Perry's running mate in the 2012 race.


chickensmack March 5, 2011 at 1:24 am

The grainy image, lack of a computer on every desk, and Rick's Butt Cut makes me think that photo was from 1986.

Negropolis March 5, 2011 at 2:51 am

Odd that he posts dogs on his Twitter, because he allegedly has a boot fetish, and a bad habit of running his fingers through other peoples' (read: strangers') hair.

ShaveTheWhales March 6, 2011 at 2:17 am

The photo with the three Labbies (1) is insanely cute; (2) has me thinking badgerbadgerbadger.

miss_grundy March 7, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Poor, poor Beau, he has to have that ugly Republican kneeling next to him. I love Beau Obama!!!!!
