She might be a bit shaggy, but Lucy Lou wants to run for president — and she comes with political experience.
The border collie has served as mayor of Rabbit Hash, an unincorporated community of 135 residents along the Ohio River in northern Kentucky, since 2008.
Bobbi Kayser, Lucy's owner and chief executive of staff, told The Kentucky Enquirer that she will announce her ambitions for higher office — and her retirement as mayor — on Saturday.
As the story goes, Lucy and her canine predecessors got into the political arena because it seemed as if politics was going to the dogs anyway.
No word on whether Lucy will file as a Democrat, a Republican or as a third-party candidate.
