"They just put a smile on people's faces and they create a lot of happiness," said their human and Chief of Staff, Phyllis Mueller.
"He knows he's the mayor," Phyllis Mueller says. "He poses on command."
From ABC News:
The town, which is non-incorporated, has has been electing canines for its highest office since 2012. Nonprofit Idyllwild Animal Rescue Friends sponsored the town's first-ever mayoral election, in which any resident was permitted to nominate his or her pet, according to the mayor's website.
Maximus Mighty-Dog Mueller became the town's first mayor after winning the election, which included 13 other dogs and two cats, with two-thirds of the vote. Constituents paid $1 donations to vote, which raised $31,000 for the organization.
After Max Mueller died in 2013, he was succeeded by Maximus Mighty-Dog Mueller II.
"I, Max, do swear on my food bowl to faithfully execute my duties as Mayor of Idyllwild," his oath reads.
