Love and Texas politics usually don’t go hand in hand but yesterday we had the chance to witness real love–for four-legged friends–at the Texas State Capitol. We attended a press conference held on the Capitol steps; the occasion was to mark the official endorsement by Kinky Friedman of Woodrow for governor. Woodrow just so happens to be a dog.
Kinky Friedman, a longtime animal advocate who has his own animal rescue in the Texas Hill Country, often speaks about animal welfare. This event was to benefit Austin Pets Alive!, a nonprofit group working to find homes for homeless pets and to make Austin a no-kill city.
