Mitt Romney Admits Family Dog Rode on the Roof of His CarPublished January 12, 2012
Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney might have his hands full with PETA and other animal lovers after events involving his family dog from over 20 years ago resurfaced.
What's more is that Romney actually admitted to the act in an interview on Fox News, and tried to explain that Seamus enjoyed riding on the roof. He asserted that, with a car full of five children, the dog was probably more comfortable up top than he would have been if he was in the car.
What Romney obviously didn't know is that, as the interviewer points out, putting a dog on the roof of a car (in a kennel or otherwise) is considered cruel and inhumane in the state of Massachusetts. Whoops...

Romney's actions obviously weren't the smartest. Most animal lovers, as the interviewer notes, would just as soon put their animal on the roof of a car as they would their own children.
