Showing that even our political representatives are not above sending each other cutesy pics of adorable animals, Calvert on Tuesday tweeted and Facebooked the results of the annual competition sponsored by the Animal Health Institute:
I’m pleased to announce that our office dog Cali beat out 131 other dogs to be crowned Cutest Dog on the Hill! Congratulations Cali! #pet

Hawaiian Democrat Mazie Hirono, whose cat Hemic, placed second also tweeted:

Both lawmakers now return to the more serious business of sending each other Onion links and playing Facebook Farm Town.
