Toto Albanese makes her Twitter debut

It is a universally recognized truth, that a campaign trail presented by the lack of candidates greets a furry friend, baby or toddler.
But it looks like we’ll see a lot more of Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s new dog Toto, and the female kavoodle making her anthropomorphic debut on Twitter via the ‘Toto Albanese, Australia’s 1st dog’ account on Tuesday.

“Hello Australia! Dad thought it would be a good idea to get me a Twitter account so here I am! Woof!” tweet the account opening it.

The admin who led the account landed somewhere between a human voice and a dog’s voice, but Twitter didn’t seem to mind, and the account hacked four thousand followers in a matter of hours.
The feed contacted the owner of the Twitter account and confirmed that he was just a fan and not someone from Mr. Albanese’s office – though some on Twitter seem to think it’s the latter.

Dylan, a 20-year-old law student from Brisbane, is behind the account, creating the page because: “I just love the dog”.

So far, the account content includes retweets and shares from other accounts that see the dog.

“Toto Albanese: Minister for Good Boy,” reads a retweet, featuring a photo of Toto sporting his signature campaign in a red scarf ‘Albo 2022’ course.

Toto has joined Prime Minister Anthony Albanese several times during the campaign. When the labor leader hired COVID-19, Mr. Albanese often thanked Toto his “iso boyfriend” for keeping his company. When he was released from solitary confinement, the first photo of a recovered Albanian man was captured walking his dog while he kept a cool bag of food.

Last year, Mr. Albanese spoke of his attachment to Toto.
“I definitely feel better forever than I did with Toto,” she told Adelaide Advertiser.
“He loves me, he’s faithful, he’s a great company, and he’s always happy to see me.”
Former Prime Minister Scott Morrison also had a family dog, a black schnoodle named Buddy. The Schnoodle didn’t have a Twitter account, which seems to make this a first for Australia’s ‘First’ pet.

But it is not the first in the world, with the administration of former US President Barack Obama running an account for his dog, Bo. Bo, a black and white Portuguese water dog, died last year at the age of 12.

In 2019, former U.S. President Donald Trump caused a stir when he became the country’s first leader in more than a century of moving to the White House without a canine friend.

In an interview on her album the same year, singer Barbra Streisand asked how it could be so.

“How come the president doesn’t have a dog?” he asked, incredible. “He is the first president in 120 years without a dog in the White House.”

Answering the question that troubled Ms. Streisand, Mr. Trump said while being told she would look good politically, she felt like a “crazy” to find a dog she didn’t have time for.

Toto’s response on Twitter was mixed.

Someone under the tweet said: “Good idea for an account but please, please, please, for loving dogs: Toto’s ‘dad’ was another dog. Albo is several things for Toto, but ‘dad’ is not one of them. “
