I've recently learned via this feature in the Washington Post that quite a few folks (see: Senators) on Capitol Hill bring their dogs to work. Yes, dogs to their place of business. In the government.â†µ
Well, it appears that at least one dog has instinctively carried the KU/MU rivalry to Capitol Hill. Yes, Sen. Kit Bond (R-Mo) brings Tiger to work and, yes, Tiger is named after what you think it is.â†µ
Tiger is named after the University of Missouri mascot. She likes to lie on her bed under Bond's desk and destroy University of Kansas Jayhawks toys. Tiger's school spirit once led to an embarrassing situation, Bond said: She wouldn't stop barking at Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Chairman Sheila C. Bair. Bair has two degrees from Kansas, and "I think she sniffed it out," Bond said.â†µ
No one else finds this weird?
