In the Dog House…

Well, at least he didn’t ruin the carpet.

Nonetheless, Clifford the big red dog — of PBS and storybook fame — ended up in the state Senate’s dog house today for breaking the rules.

Clifford (actually a PBS volunteer in a mascot-like suit) is at the Capitol lobbying against deep funding cuts to public broadcasting. He gave out hugs to lawmakers before the floor session.

He was supposed to make an appearance in the House and Senate galleries to wave to lawmakers at the start of their legislative day.

But, alas, the rules here — including the one that bans hats in the Senate — apply to everyone. Even costumed dogs.

So the Senate told Clifford to scram…at least down the hall to the House of Delegates, which didn’t seem to mind the big red head.
