Senate Chihuahua Digs Cannon Rover

According to the animal rescuer in the office of Rep. David B. McKinley, R-W.Va., who tended to the stray dog that popped by unannounced , its owner swooped by to scoop it up shortly thereafter.  

The visit may have been short-lived. But the well-bundled mutt caused enough of a stir that an admirer surfaced on the other side of the Capitol.

“My 5-lb Chihuahua, named Sassy, thinks he’s kinda cute and wants to know if he’s seeing anyone…?” a Senate Democrat aide quizzed HOH after learning about the wandering rascal.  

Per Sassy’s mom, her pint-sized pooch’s turn-ons include fashionable males (“Bonus points for this one, as he’s clearly well-groomed and knows how rock a stylish sweater!”) and romps in the park (who doesn’t?).

“She recently lost her long-time (play) mate to cancer and has been pretty lonesome the last few months,” the congressional matchmaker shared. “Maybe they can meet over some kibble and water during recess lunch when the weather clears.”  

Should Lost In Cannon turn out to be the indoors-y type, Sassy still sounds like a pretty terrific fit.  

“When she’s not at the office (Russell) you can usually find her … at home watching Animal Planet,” the Senate aide suggested.
