Election goes to the dogs

There’s another election going on in Bethlehem and it has nothing to do with Republicans, Democrats or Independents. Instead, the Puppy Palace Doggie Day Care is running an election on Facebook with 23 parties broken down by dog breed running in a primary election through Oct. 30.

Winners in each category will then square off in a general election that culminates with the Facebook polls closing Nov. 8 at 8 p.m.

Puppy Palace owner Shannon Patrick said she has been working on this idea since August and that its reception has been fantastic.
