This cartoon a dog

Michael Ramirez never ceases to amaze me with his cartoons.

In his recent cartoon, he draws a “Russian” dog using Barack Obama as a fire hydrant, with the caption of someone saying, “Do you think animals can sense weakness?”

He missed the boat by not including a French poodle, English bulldog, German shepherd, Mexican Chihuahua, Irish setter, Japanese Akita, Afghan hound and a Chinese chow chow.

The list could go on, except that there would have to be more than one cartoon if he used the dogs of all the other countries that think America is weak.

The final touch of this cartoon could have been an American eagle doing a fly-by.
