PHOTO: Homage to Seamus Romney, Mitt Romney's 'Roofracked' Dog, Seen in Jamaica Plain

Someone driving a Toyota Camry around JP is making a statement about former Gov. Mitt Romney's infamous dog-on-the-roof-of-the-station-wagon incident.

Republican nominee for president, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, won't be winning JP. Or the state he used to govern, for that matter.

But you'll still see evidence of the presidential campaign here and there in Boston. JP resident Gretchen Van Ness noticed an homage to the 12-hour ride the Romney's Irish Setter, Seamus, was forced to endure on a family vacation in 1983.

A Toyota Camry with a very wet stuffed dog lashed to the roof wearing a t-shirt that says "Shame Us." Don't know who the owner is, but there are plenty of crazy dog people in JP! (I'm one of them, I have to admit).

Hat tip to the indispensable Universal Hub for first drawing attention to Gretchen's photo.

nice photo. There's also an online game about Seamus at seamus-the-dog.com You play as the dog and can poop on Romney's car.

There is a big difference between the decision of an adult to put a dog on a car and a young boy living according to the customs of another country.

Well put, Maura!

Bravo, Maura! A voice of reason.

@ Rher: "Reason" i think the term you are looking for is rational. @ Maura: there is a major differance; Romney's dog didn't die, the dog Obama ate did!
