LOS GATOS, CA—Local dog owner Elizabeth Juarez was stunned to learn her dog, an Australian Shepherd named Sandwich, is racist. “At first I thought he just hated my boyfriend because he wanted to be the only man in my life,” said Juarez, who purchased Sandwich from Purity Kennels. “But then we started to notice he only barked at black men, like my boyfriend, our neighbor, and the mailman. I thought, okay, maybe we can talk to him about anti-blackness in the canine community, but he came home yesterday with a #BlueLivesMatter pin on his collar and I don’t know what to say to him right now.” Sandwich was unavailable for comment, as he was busy digging a hole under the fence.
