Local best mate Chewbarker has expressed outrage at being denied chocolate treats during Easter. The dog was seen protesting at a nearby park, demanding scientists present evidence to prove chocolate is harmful.
Chewbarker questioned the legitimacy of widely-accepted scientific research, which has long confirmed chocolate as toxic to dogs. “I’m a sovereign pup demanding equal access to chocolate treats. Show me the science.”
Chewbarker’s owner, who requested anonymity, stated, “He’s been watching too many conspiracy videos on YouTube. I tried to tell him the truth, but he doesn’t want to listen.”
Chewbarker’s crusade has garnered support from a fringe group of dogs, who now believe this chocolate ban is part of a larger government conspiracy. One Golden Retriever, Maximus, commented, “What’s next? No more belly rubs? We need to fight for our rights.”
In response, the scientific community has said: “While we appreciate Chewbarker’s enthusiasm, dog owners must remember to keep chocolate away from their pets, regardless of the growing canine conspiracy theories.”
