I don't think she'd be ready for prime time anyway. She's had a hard time finding her stride as a new governor over the past year. This is her first actual elected experience.

No need to bid "Farewell" to Kristi Noem. In my humble opinion she was never a viable VP candidate anyway. Much along the lines of a Sarah Palin.

Being in the position she is in she should of used better judgement in how she dealt with the aftermath of shooting the 'puppy'.

Having trained a couple of hunting dogs in my day, to a young dog, chasing chickens is no different than chasing after a pheasant. With the proper amount of training most can be trained not to do that. However, biting someone in their chicken killing frenzy is definitely a bad sign and SoDak being as rural as it is, dealing with the situation will be quick and decisive and probably unpleasant in the eyes of those living in the more populated areas.

Being from South Dakota-pheasant country, I'm glad you shared your perspective.

Yeah, I agree that she's a little like Sarah Palin... and not a good VP candidate anyway.

Being a LEO, having to deal with animal control issues, I’ve come into contact with several dog owners who have killed their dogs. Some were due to attacks on people or animals. There were other reasons, but they don’t come to mind right now. None have ever done it in front of me, though.

Just a few side issues, some dogs are more bity than other breeds. Regardless of that, getting between any dog that’s chasing something can result in a bite.

As a kid, we had a terrier of sorts, one time it got into an open top rabbit pen. It was inside chasing a rabbit or 2 around, I jumped in to grab it. I ended up between the dog and a rabbit, resulting in the dog biting my ankle.

This was a bite that I didn’t really blame on the dog, it was after the rabbit. Just like when I’ve seen a dog bark at someone and they think it’s ‘attacking’.

Wasn't she also tied to some adultery. That seemed to die down.

Where I grew up, what Kristi did is quite normal and acceptable......due to the situation. Telling about it.......not so good.

Hey, at least this new story means nobody is still talking about those cringy ads she did a few months ago for the cosmetic dentist who gave her free veneers. Just more proof she's not ready for prime time.

"Way up north" you will hear of bunches of them being "culled", sled dogs not up to the work, but too expensive, too numerous to keep around and care for.


I had a friend way back that had shot a few of his dogs. Old / sick ones. His view was "this if my dog, I'm not going to have some stranger kill him." I get it, but not something for most people for sure.

(I learned of this after hearing the story of him "putting someone else's dog down", and questioning it. Family fried didn't want to or couldn't bring it to the vet, so the asked him to do it. It was some giant dog like a mastiff, as it turned out the dog died before the "event", but he told the story of trying to get that monster down from upstairs and out of the house by himself.)

No lie!! He is a dirtbag. RINO. If any Republican fought him in the state legislature he dumped money into another canidate and get them voted out. Plus he made all of his money from Bill Gates. I cant wait till he is gone. I am guessing Secretary of Ag. or something. Not VP. ND doesnt have enoug delegates

So you're saying doing it doggy style didn't do her in but doing the dog in did her in.

I grew up in Michigan's UP where some thing like this was not unusual. People did what needed to be done, but you did not brag about it in a book. Not smart!

While I certainly disagree with the way she handled it, and she's stupid for writting it in a book, I will say that people on farms with animals look at them as property and not pets.

I admit that when I was a kid (lived on a farm) my father and I approached a farmer for permission to hunt on his property. We didn't know the farmer, but he said he would allow us to hunt on his land if we would take care of his dog that kept killing his chickens. He already had the hole dug. We assisted with the chore and went on with life.

Killing animals on a farm/ranch is part of every day life so I don't hold that against them neccessarily.

Of course, Noem is an idiot to use this story in her bid to promote herself or her political ambitions. Some things are better left unsaid.

Maybe the story was known already so she got ahead of it and took the sting out. As already said, this happens out in the country and on farms regularly.
