Yep, your pup may be able to speak on command, shake hands, roll over, play dead and all kinds of other cool talents but that does not qualify for governor duties. At least not in Kansas. A lady tried to register her 3 year old wire haired Vizsla to run for governor.
In Kansas, there are no requirements for someone to run for governor but the election director shot down the applications: “There’s several laws that reference that the governor has to be an individual or a person, and so we are relying on that, and if a dog comes in to file for office, we will not allow that.” (Source)
I’m all for animal rights but this is a little ridiculous. What on Earth could a dog do as governor? Who would translate for them and how could we be sure the translator knows what the dog is saying?
When you think about it, though, it would likely save a lot of money for tax payers. Total cost of living for the governor would decrease dramatically.
