Brynneth Paltrow the pit bull promised the voters of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, that if she were elected mayor she'd promote peace, love, understanding, the importance of spaying and neutering, an end to breed discrimination and remaining peaceful with the town's cats.
The town liked this positive and progressive platform. On Tuesday, Brynn got elected, beating out a tough field that included several dogs and cats, a chicken and a plastic Godzilla figurine.
Brynn triumphed over her closest competitor - an Australian shepherd named Bourbon - by more than 1,000 votes, 3367 to 2336. (The chicken, Bossy, earned just 216 votes; the Godzilla figurine appears not to have gotten any.)
"Once they announced her the mayor, she ran around and jumped on me, gave me a lick and went about celebrating," Brynn's mom, Jordan Bamforth, tells The Dodo.
