Vote for Rudy
It's on! I will be out of town for the weekend but be sure to get the word out: Rudy for Mortal Pet Kambat Grand Champion. Now, I recognize that MPK is just as much a popularity contest as it is about Rudy's mad skillz. That's why I've lined up some pretty solid endorsements that we will be sharing with you, the voter, upon my return.
But first I want to hit some crass alegations about Mr. Von Chestnut straight on. Our opponent, SeaBass, has said some horrible things about Rudy. Or, more accurately, SeaBass has had The Pleasure make these accusations. Now, I realize that SeaBass is tight with Karl Rove, but frankly we expected more. Were's the phone call SeaBass? The genuine concern for a colleague, nay a friend in need? We here at Friends of Rudy 2006 expected more. But, we won't lie. Yes, Rudy has a poop eating problem. But rather than weakness, we say it demonstrates Rudy's courage. Courage to face one's demons:
`` Over my year of life, I felt a responsibility to speak honestly and openly about the challenges that I have with addiction to poop. I’ve been fighting this chronic disease since I was a young puppy and have aggressively and periodicly sought treatment so that I can live a full and productive life.
I struggle every day with this disease, as do millions of pets. I’ve dedicated my life to raising awareness about the chronic disease of poop addiction and have fought to increase access to care and recovery support for the many pets forced to struggle on their own.
This past months I realized I needed to seek help again, so I checked myself into Bone-A-Fide for addiction to poop. I was there over the weekend and I returned to the my owner's house reinvigorated and healthy.
Of course, in every recovery, each day has its ups and downs, but I have been strong, focused and productive in my term as PruFamily pet.
But in all candor, the incident on Wednesday evening concerns me greatly. I simply do not remember jumping of my masters' bed, pooping on PruPuppy's floor nor eating that poop. That’s not how I want to live my life and it’s not how I want to represent you as Mortal Pet Kombat Grand Champion.
The reoccurrence of an addiction problem can be triggered by things that happen in everyday life, such as having Omer Kem sleeping in the living room or Jonny Sundt chase me around the back yard. That’s not an excuse for what happened Wednesday evening, but it is a reality of fighting a chronic condition for which I am taking full responsibility.
I am deeply concerned about my reaction to poop and my lack of knowledge of the accident that evening.
But I do know enough that I know that I need help. This afternoon I am traveling to Snohomish to seek treatment at Bone-A-Fide to insure that I can continue on my road to recovery.
The greatest honor of my public life is to serve my Masters and you as MPK Grand Champion and I am determined to address this issu with the same dedication and rigor that I have exemplified over the past year.
I hope that my openness today and in the past and my acknowledgement that I need help will give others courage to get help if they need it. I am blessed to have a loving family who is in my corner every step of the way. And I am grateful to my friends, both here and in greater Seattle for reaching out to me at this time.
Jeez SeaBass, don't you feel horrible now?
