Let’s be honest, everyone’s favourite part of elections is seeing dogs at polling stations.
The results are an important part of the process (obviously) but what we really want to see are politically conscious pups casting their vote.Brits are taking their four-legged friends to vote in the European Parliament elections at polling stations across the UK today. A total of 73 MEPs will be elected in nine constituencies in England, with one each in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The stations are open for votes until 10pm, so expect to see plenty more adorable pictures under the usual trending hashtag #dogsatpollingstations.Let’s take a look at some of the cutest voters Twitter has to offer.
Celebrate Your Pet at Every Age. Everyone loves a new puppy or kitten, says Dr. Becker. “They’re wildly kinetic, and humorous. An older pet is thinner, bonier. Their coats aren’t as soft, they might have bad breath.” But, like people, a pet’s needs change with age. They may be less active, preferring a leisurely stroll to a rollicking tug-of-war. “Our old retriever, who’s blind, still wants to retrieve.” Adapting to their changing needs will ensure your old friend remains a healthy and happy member of your family.
