The Carbon Paw-Print according to Riley, The Rat Terrier

 The Carbon Paw-Print according to Riley 

Interpreted by Troy Bishopp

Hey Folks, Riley the Rat Terrier here . 

I’m barkin’ mad after reading Time to Eat the Dog: The Real Guide to Sustainable Living, by so-called sustainable living experts, Robert and Brenda Vale from New Zealand.  Who do they think they are comparing my “carbon paw-print” (pet-generated carbon footprints) to a Volkswagon’s exhaust system?
