Holy Dog Biscuits, I’m new at this position as First Dog, but I can tell you it was crowded here at the Blaine House yesterday. More than one hundred business owners, and a few extra people tossed in, all of whom worked on the Red Tape Commission were invited here for a thank you reception before the hearing on LD1 over at the Cross Building.
Now keep in mind I am just a dog, at least that’s what some people refer to me as and clearly they have NOT received the memo informing them that I am very important around here!! I have no idea what a Red Tape Commission is or LD1, but everyone was talking about it and gathered around the Governor while he spoke to the press. He’s the “Top Dog” around this house!
Being the height of the average person’s calf, it’s a great view of the crowd from my angle, and I love escorting the Governor into a meeting of any kind. You know how sometimes you see a guy on TV who yells, “Hear ye, hear ye, make way for The Governor of Maine!” Yep, that’s what I do without all the yelling. I just work my way through the crowd, grab a couple of compliments and pats on my head, help myself to snacks on the floor while guests balance food on their napkins, then I settle in for the event.
Life as First Dog is good here at the Blaine House . I really love this gig.
Above, I’m just making sure the podium and microphone are ready before guests arrive. This picture was taken in the Reception Room. FYI – blue and gold colors in this room were chosen to match the colors in our state flag.
Oh the things you can learn if you stick with me?
