Politicians cuddling with dogs, not eating them [SLIDESHOW]

It’s a dog eat dog world out there. Or at least a president eat dog world. But not all politicians eat dogs (cough — Obama), or strap them to the roof of the car.

Some politicians do perfectly normal activities with their canine companions, like take them for runs or cuddle up to them.

Here are pictures of politicians snuggling up with their adorable furry friends — not eating them. Dogs are man’s best friend, after all.
