A Dog’s Brexit

Have you heard of this curious word?
This word Brexit, it’s really absurd.
Perhaps you’ve heard it in conversations,
On Facebook, TV or radio stations.
It sounds pretty nonsense, we don’t understand,
I can try to explain, but I might need a hand.
Quite simply. It’s British and exit as one.
British. Exit. Brexit. Done?
Maybe it’s simpler to show you a land far away,
Bowwow Town where the dogs like to play…

A Dog’s Brexit was inspired by a political cartoon by Gatis Šļūka (June 2016).

A Dog’s Brexit is a Dr Seuss meets Animal Farm-esque portrayal of Britain’s exit from the EU, filled with dogs, rhyme, songs and explanations that aim to speak directly to children.

The dogs of Bowwow Town are all part of the BU, aka the Bowwow Union. The kennels trade and dogs move from kennel to kennel, but this luxury comes at a price… a lot of doggie-dollar and BU rules to deal with. And so the day comes when some British Bulldogs decide they want to leave the BU. In an attempt to be reelected, the Top Dog announces a BU ruf-erendum, where the British Bulldogs must vote in or out. And so the campaigns begin!

Join Barney Bulldog and his family, as they squabble and disagree about which way to vote, in a Dog-Eat-Dog world where the news and media is an unavoidable influence…
