Now this is a political campaign with real bite.

Woodrow, a hound mix, is going up against Democrat Bill White and Republican Rick Perry for the Texas Governor's seat. His slogan, "How ruff could it be?" has already won him an endorsement from Kinky Friedman, a human who formerly had a bid in for Governor himself.

The pooch's Web site calls him "a loyal, loving, fair, honest candidate for Governor" and continues, "Isn't that what Texas needs? Woodrow never a met a dog he didn't like. Once homeless and down on his luck in the animal shelter, he wants to show Texans that great things can happen to anyone, even dogs, when given a chance."

The goal of Woodrow's campaign is to bring attention to animals who are in desperate need of a home. Woodrow's owner, Lorri Michel, is using his political career to raise money for Austin Pets Alive, an organization of volunteers who daily rescue as many animals as they can from a local shelter's kill list.
