Poodles are smarter than to register as a Republican

I was dismayed by your report that a Contra Costa County resident had illegally registered his poodle to vote as a Republican ("Man registered dog as Republican, gets jury notice," March 16). 

As a former poodle owner, I know these dogs to be highly intelligent and empathetic. If consulted in the matter, the average poodle would almost certainly prefer to register Democratic.
