In 1984, Sunol California, elected the first dog to be honorary mayor. He defeated two humans as a write in candidate and held the position until his death in 1994.
Sunol erected a bronze statue of Bosco, to honor the Labrador mix with his signature bandana.
Usually his duty as honorary mayor would mean that he headed the Halloween parade. In 1990 a Chinese paper commented on the fact that in the U. S. a dog was elected as a proof of the failure of democracy. This was after the Tiananmen Square protests.
So, Bosco was invited by local Chinese students to participate in a demonstration in front of the San Francisco Chinese embassy.
While this makes a cute story, please vote!
