The bitch you can count on

The mayor of Rabbit Hash, a small community of 315 people in Kentucky, has died aged 12.

Lucy Lou was an “astounding canine” said her campaign manager and owner, Bobbi Kayser. Her campaign slogan – “the bitch you can count on” – won her the election in 2008, beating 10 other dogs, a cat, an opossum and a jackass.
