North Texas Man Tries To Put Dog On City Council

Updated: Wednesday, February 19 2014, 12:32 PM CST
A North Texas retiree is trying to put his dog on his suburban city council.

Mike Howard filed a petition to place his 10-year-old westie Dylan on the ballot for mayor of Irving.

He said it's a form of protest over the gridlock he sees at city hall.

"What better way to solve a catfight than get a dog in the mix," Howard mused.

Unfortunately, a technicality is keeping the pooch from realizing his grand ambitions. The city said he can't qualify as a candidate unless he's a registered voter.North Texas Man Tries To Put Dog On City Council
