On Off-year Election Day, Obama Dog Gets Most of the Attention

On Off-year Election Day, Obama Dog Gets Most of the Attention











First Dog, from DrawtheDog.com


Westport, CT (PRWEB) November 3, 2009

Profiling the country’s most famous dog, Draw the Dog’s Election Day cartoon is inspired by Bo, First Dog of The White House.

Draw the Dog was launched two months ago by former Disney cartoonist Jim George and his friend, entrepreneur and dog lover Bruce Kasanoff. Every cartoon is inspired by a real dog ; owners submit stories via the site.

To make the site unique, each dog cartoon appears to draw itself.

The cartoons range from one about two Great Danes who opened a second-story window only to end up stuck on a porch roof — requiring the fire department to get them — to a Border Collie who kept switching its owner’s lights on and off using a remote light switch.

Last week, a reader suggested that Draw the Dog profile the First Dog. He even described the whole setting of the cartoon, and Jim George sat down right away and drew the cartoon. “When we get a good idea from our readers,” says George, “We jump on it. That’s the beauty of interacting directly with your audience.”

The cartoonist’s talent is evident in this cartoon. President Obama is not an easy person to satirize or capture accurately, but George does a great job here. “Bo looks good, too,” adds Kasanoff.

The site’s two co-founders are highly motivated to make people smile, and to capture the often magical relationship between people and dogs. Says Kasanoff, “For whatever reason, dogs seem to bring out the best in most of us. They’re always happy to see you, always accept you for who you are, and nearly always are willing to play.”

News of the site has spread through word of mouth across dog forums and Web sites. Barely two months after its launch, the website has attracted visitors from 49 countries and receives well over 100 submissions per week.

“First Dog” is on Draw the Dog’s home page all day today, Tuesday November 3.

To date, the site has included cartoons about Dobermans, Great Danes, Collies, Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Bassett Hounds, German Shepherds, Beagles and Boxers. George and Kasanoff are eager to feature other breeds, and look forward to receiving more stories submitted through the Make Your Dog Famous section of DrawtheDog.com.

His brief bio on the site says, “Draw the Dog is drawn by Jim George, one of your typical ex-Disney animators who lives near the beach in Venice and once spent years animating in a cabin in the woods and who has been creating characters for film and TV and who has been a director and book author and who also has a counseling practice and who really likes animals and people, too.”

Kool Dog Kafe, a well known purveyor of gourmet dog treats, has an established reputation as a leader in the pet industry and one of the best service oriented suppliers of doggie baked goods. The introduction of their Presidential Election Collection line, once again exemplifies their leadership in the category of creativity and innovation. “This is a historic moment in the United States of America right now,” said Kerry King, one of the directors of Kool Dog Kafe. “The presidential election of 2008 has not only raised the country’s consciousness, but it has brought out the patriotic spirit in everyone. Our dogs would want to participate.”

With the same level of goodness and attention to detail, Kool Dog Kafe’s Presidential Election Collection has been received with almost as much anticipation as a delegate’s vote for a presidential candidate. The company’s famous yogurt dipped doggie cupcakes decorated with red and blue stars or stripes; the best selling peanut butter bones dipped in red, white, and blue; and the scrumptious soft doggie treats such as the carob brownies drizzled and sprinkled with mini red and blue stars are only some of the gourmet doggie treat selections being offered by Kool Dog Kafe in this year’s Presidential Election Collection for dogs.

The dog treats that Kool Dog Kafe offers have already been featured in various nationwide publications, as well as appeared on several television shows. Their treats are enjoyed by numerous well known celebrities and have the endorsement of retail store owners throughout the U.S and abroad. The team at Kool Dog Kafe feels that their new line of gourmet dog treats would surely receive the endorsement of both major political parties.
