Debate Tuesday: Arty Asks


Hi, everyone, and welcome back to this week's Debate Tuesday! It's Christmas here, and I'm happy to announce this week Arty asked the five questions today for our debate. You probably know that each week us three candidates take turns asking questions. I asked the questions two weeks ago, Lexi asked them last week, and today Arty had some great questions for our debate!

I'm sure you all know the candidates behind the debates, right?





1. If you could be a super hero who would you be and why??
Arty: I would be Captain America because he and I are both all about truth, justice and being all around good guys!!
Lexi: I think this picture says it all: A heroine fighting for justice, love, peace and (gender) equality.
Christmas: Hmm...that's a tough one. Maybe I'd be Batman. He was originally Catwoman's nemesis, right? I'm just in it to chase a cat, people.














































2. As Mayor of Blogville, how would you make all animals (not just canines) feel welcome??
Arty: I am a big fan of making new friends! I have kitty friends, donkey friends, crabby friends and even a friend that is a pig. I would keep hosting, and helping my sissy Dory host pawrties and make sure all my furiends new they were welcome!
Lexi: As I wrote in a recent post: All Lives Matter: All dog lives matter. All cat lives matter. All pig lives matter. All bird lives matter. All rabbit lives matter. In short, All Lives Matter. I will not discriminate because of species, breed, age, economic status, color, or gender. Not so sure about snakes and spiders, but I am open to discussion on this.
Christmas: With a place like Blogville, I'd reach out to all of my pawsome Blogville pals and tell them about the new addition. I remember how comforted and welcome I felt when I first entered Blogville, and that's something every new Blogville peep should experience. The support we have here is overwhelming, and I'll do my best to keep everyone updated on new arrivals if I become mayor.

3. Do you believe Pupparrazzi should be confined to certain hours of the day?
Arty: YES!! Being a model is hard work, and I believe the pupparazzi should only be able to take pictures between10am and 2pm. Unless there is an specific Blogville event, in which case they should have to obtain a permit!
Lexi: Absolutely! Unless, of course, they come bearing pupperoni’s.
Christmas: Yes, but it depends the case...sometimes I like to stay up late and party like there's no tomorrow, and that's a good time to share treats with my pupparazzi and let them get good pictures of me for the hottest social media sites. However, some nights I'm just peacefully sleeping in my crate and I see a hound dog in my window taking me photos of me...in that case, yes, a celebrity should have his or her own privacy when he or she wants it. We might be popular and trending, but we are still normal dogs like every other dog, and we all have our limits. Luckily, now that I have a secret service squad (consisting of Zaphod, Beachnut, and Shelldon) my new team can escort crazy pupparazzi peeps away from me!

4. Along the same lines, what are your thoughts on "Payment" for work (tricks, modeling, keeping the pawrents out of trouble, etc.) performed?
Arty: I do believe a law should be passed insisting that high value Zukes treats should be given out with a 5 treat minimum! The amount of treats being increased to the degree of difficulty of the work performed!
Lexi: I always expect payment for performance. I believe it is all a matter of training our peeps correctly, from the first moment we step I the door. “Go outside to potty? What’s in it for me?” If we work for free, our value is diminished. I also believe that we all should receive payment in the form we like best whether it is treats, play-time, cuddling, Mickey D’s, etc.
Christmas: It depends the pet. Some doggies like toys, some like treats, and if you go as far to teach a cat something, well, it depends the cat. But whatever that reward is THAT PET SHOULD GET A LOT OF IT! I think maybe an 87 minimum? I don't know, us show dogs gotta keep fit. My cat bros like mousy toys, so maybe that's a good payment. Also, I think I should get more treats for performing "sit". I know it so well I don't get a treat that much when I do it but lots of verbal praise...what's with that? I might be so low to the ground I really don't have to think about sitting, but hey, what if a human told another human to sit and they couldn't reject the offer? Wouldn't that be tiring? Wouldn't you want a latte out of it every now and then?

5. When you attend a social gathering are you the social butterfly, the wallflower or the pawty animal. Explain how??
Arty: I am a Pawty Animal!! I am the first at any pawty to play BOOM!,  Ear biteys or bitey face. Mama says she is not sure this is a good thing, but I just love to play!! 
Lexi: This is a tough one, as I spend much more time with the peeps, where I enjoy listening to intellectual conversation while being fed bites of their special party foods. I guess with other anipals I am more of an organizer, you know, the one in charge.
Christmas: Hmm...this is also sort of tough. Let's see...well, I like to stick close to my mom, but I love to meet new peeps and I love busting out some dance moves...I wouldn't say I'm any of these...maybe a mix of them all?

Thanks for stopping by, everyone! All three of us candidates asked questions...now we want questions from y'all! Please leave some questions for us to answer in our next debate!

P.S. If you are that Basset Hound that keeps popping up in my window at night flashing that annoying camera at my face, please stop or I will have to call my secret service peeps!

  12. Joey dog here. Excellent debate doggies! As Doggie Chief Inspector, comestibles division, and author of the Yum Yum Coalition Guide to Doggie Employment, I can say that standard payment for photography is two yum yum doggie treats per session. If it was more than that, my associate Chester would weight 100 pounds by now!
