Readers’ wildlife photos:

We have only one photo today, but regular posting will resume tomorrow. This is from Stephen Barnard, who has adorned his border collie:

I made Deets impersonate The Donald*. He didn’t like it.


He’s still be a better president than the real Trump!


*If you’re not American, “The Donald” refers to Donald Trump:

    1. He is practicing his look of feline … exasperation … at the behaviour of the hoominz.

  1. Deets is clearly better looking than Trump
    (most d*gs and all cats are); certainly more
    intelligent and while Trump’s jawline is
    hidden by adipose tissue, Deets has a
    fur reason.

    Deets may be a border collie; Trump is a border moron.

    1. Did you hear his speech about Mexican immigrants being rapists and murderers?
      “Border moron” indeed!

    2. Let’s hope The Border Patrol prohibits his repatriation from Moronia.

      (I believe “moral turpitude” is grounds for exclusion.)

  2. Much more going on under that thing on Deets’ head than what you have in that other photo.

  3. Poor Deets!

    59% of USians would apparently never vote for Trump, which is the highest negativity rating in polling history. However, that means there are tens of millions who would! It’s a bit scary.

  4. You have to be 35+ to be US president (though I don’t think the constitution specifies whether this is human years or dog years).

    1. Unfortunately we in Scotland are well aware of this idiot, who clearly thinks that because he is rich and has built a golf course here, he can tell our leaders how to run the country (which is, of course, to run it for his benefit). Good luck if he makes it to the White House.

      1. A golf course, the building of which required the bullying into submission of a wide range of people who did not wish to have it imposed on them.

        The man is not just a moron but also an oafish bully.

  5. Deets, politics can stink to high heaven so your olfactory senses are in for a treat! Which goes without saying, you’ll know a bad arse from a good one.

  6. via talking points memo: “Shock Poll: Donald Trump Comes In 2nd Place In New Hampshire”

    Maybe he is a “serious candidate” after all — despite what GOP strategist Karl Rove says.

    Donald Trump, real estate mogul and 2016 Republican presidential candidate, fared quite well in a Suffolk University poll of New Hampshire Republicans released Tuesday.

    Trump ranked second with 11 percent of the support in the poll of Republicans likely to vote in the presidential primary. He was beat out by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), who was backed by 14 percent.

    Other candidates who received notable support were Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) with 8 percent and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), with 7 percent.

    Of those polled, 29 percent were undecided.

    The poll looked at a broader range of potential GOP candidates than many other polls — 19 in all.

    But Trump, who said he filed his official campaign paperwork on Monday, was still the least-liked Republican candidate. The poll found that Trump was viewed unfavorably by 49 percent of those surveyed, while only 37 percent reported having a favorable view of him.

    The poll was conducted among 500 likely Republican presidential primary voters over the telephone between June 18 and June 22. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.

    1. Who gets to vote in US Primaries? Are all voters eligible or can you only vote in the Primary if you are a member of the party concerned? If it’s the former, what is to stop Democrat supporters voting in a Republican primary (or vice versa) for the candidate they consider least likely to mount an effective campaign in the Presidential election? I could envisage such an effect bumping up a buffoon like Trump’s success in the primaries.

      1. Generally, and I think this varies from state to state, you have to be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in that party’s primary, but it’s possible to switch affiliation at no cost to try to push the selection on the other side to your side’s ultimate favor. Chances of enough people doing this to skew the results is probably low, tho.
