DENVER | As political vandalism goes, it was a doggone shame: Someone cut a photo of Heidi Ganahl’s Labrador puppy out of her oversized campaign banner near the University of Colorado.

But Ms. Ganahl didn’t whine. Instead, the founder of Camp Bow Wow posted a photo of the sabotaged sign and invited her supporters to replace the missing mutt by sending in shots of their dogs with the hashtags #politicsisruff and #puppygate.

She received a flood of photos from furry fans, including some wearing bandanas in support of her campaign for a seat on the University of Colorado Board of Regents.

“#Puppygate pics are everywhere! It’s awesome to see some fun in the midst of so much negativity!” said Ms. Ganahl in a Saturday post on Twitter.

The episode also prompted some growling from 9News Denver anchor Kyle Clark.

“That’s ugly, people. Do not be doing that kind of thing!” Mr. Clark said during his report on the roughed-up sign.

The Republican Ganahal, the entrepreneur and self-described “top dog” behind the Camp Bow Wow pet-care franchise, is running against former Democratic state Rep. Alice Madden.
