Election 2015 - the day dogs ruled the internet

Everyone knows the internet was invented for cats. You can’t go anywhere online without the furry critters popping up in everything you do, from social media to professional emails.

But on the day of the 2015 UK election, the blasé attitude of cats saw man’s best friend, the dog, take over the internet as they headed to polling stations across the country.

On Twitter, #DogsAtPollingStations was trending all day, as eager pups followed their electorates to polling stations and waited proudly as the votes were cast.

The cats tried to fight back later with the hashtag #CatsNotAtPollingStations, but it was too late. The dogs claimed their 15 minutes of fame.

It’s not like we all had more important things to do, like decide the fate of the country.
