Nakoa (Koa) Charles Bear, was officially crowned as Prince and heir to the office title of National Hot Tub Dog today. Koa was born on August 28, 2014 amidst a swarm of controversy surrounding the proper succession of the official position of the National Hot Tub Dog.
The first official National Hot Tub Dog was Moose, who attained the position way back in 1992. Moose, the original National Hot Tub Dog passed away in 2002. He was succeeded by Sammy, who held the office until he passed in 2013.
The succession was naturally passed on to Sanji in 2013 for a short time. Sanji was adopted by PoolAndSpa.com’s Founder Daniel Harrison in 2008. In June of 2014, Sanji passed on, amidst another swarm of controversy, where the successor title was fought by a number of other Hot Tub Dogs.
It was assumed that Cody (Kodiak Charles Bear) would naturally inherit the title, but unexpected push-back and opposition immediately occurred, caused by a few other dogs, who believed that they were entitled to the rightful succession of the coveted title.
However, Cody and his staff were informed on 06/04/2014 that he was, in fact, the legal successor to the title of National Hot Tub Dog. Upon receiving the news, he was immediately administered the oath of office. There was no Prince, nor future heir, nor successor, to the title until recently.
Although Cody’s owner Daniel Harrison did, in fact, officially adopt NaKoa (Koa) in December of 2014, there were again, numerous attempts by other dogs to try to attain the coveted title of “Crowned Prince To The Throne” of the National Hot Tub Dog (should something happen to Cody).
PoolAndSpa.com’s International Office Of Hot Tub Dog Affairs recently held hearings where competing dogs were given a chance to present their cases for breaking the natural succession of the office of National Hot Tub Dog. Arguments were presented contesting the term “National” verses “Worldwide”. Other lawyers argued the fact that since there is no actual “blood-line” to the throne, the fact that NaKoa was even being considered for the office was moot. There were those who contended that the “heir apparent” should be within the blood-line of the AKC Kodiac Charles Bear (Cody) line and/or his successors.
After 15 days of testimony, this case was finally put before the Supreme Court Committee Of PoolAndSpa.com’s International Office Of Hot Tub Dog Affairs. After only seven hours of deliberation, it was decided that:
“The canine known as Nakoa Charles Bear (Koa) is now officially the “Crowned Prince” and heir apparent of the title of National Hot Tub Dog, and will be the successor of said title, should Kodiak Charles Bear (Cody) be unwilling or unable to continue the responsibilities of the position. The sealed arguments of the contesting dogs in this action have been seriously considered after the arguments were presented, and it is the opinion of this Court, that they have been found to have no merit in this case. The overwhelming evidence presented by the legal team for Nakoa Charles Bear was more than enough evidence to quickly support this decision”.
Immediate legal reaction to this decision was widespread, worldwide. TMZ was said to have reported that “It is clear that Koa should have no right to this position. The Supreme Court Committee Of PoolAndSpa.com’s International Office Of Hot Tub Dog Affairs is flat out wrong. Koa has no experience for this position and either Justin Beiber or Lindsey Lohan (although not dogs) would have more knowledge of dogs, hot tubs and the Internet than this “Koa” person, if that is his real name.”
Media opinions of this decision have been mixed, yet oddly confusing….
Fox News reporter Megan Kelly was reportedly stated to say that “Mr. NaKoa and his team have just won a victory which proves that only money matters in today’s courts. It is clear that other dog’s bloodlines should have taken precedent over the defense arguments of Mr. NaKoa’s legal team. This is clearly an Obama Administration, Hillary Clinton loving, Democratic bid to try to take over every aspect of free American’s lives.”
However MSNBC reporter Rachel Maddow supposedly said that “Mr. NaKoa and his team have just won a victory which proves that only money matters in today’s courts. It may be of note that other dog’s bloodlines possibly should have taken precedent over the defense arguments of Mr. NaKoa’s legal team. This defense is clearly a Republican, Jeb Bush loving, attempt to try to take over every aspect of free American’s lives. We applaud the team fighting against Mr. Nakoa. Unfortunately in this case, those positions were rejected by the court. Clearly this is due to the Reagan and Bush appointees who now make even the simplest “dog-related” decisions a “political issue” rather than a Democratic legal issue.”
After months of legal depositions, official testimonies, and thousands of produced documents, the President and CEO of PoolAndSpa.com Inc., Daniel Harrison, commented that “Hey, it’s a freakin’ dog. I truly love them all, but really? WTF? Why is this so important? If Cody dies, then Koa will be the National Hot Tub Dog. Period.”
This harsh, Hillary loving, Climate Change believing, Obama supporting, dog hating comment has put Mr. Harrison in the limelight of the world’s media on this explosive issue.
Bill O’Reilly is said to have reported that “Mr. Harrison’s bid to take this unworthy canine to the ranks of National Hot Tub Dog is a clear Democratic grab to take over America.” While Bill Maher reportedly told someone “Hey, I saw the photos of NaKoa and he seems credible. I support his succession to Hot Tub Dog Of The Year, or whatever the F%ck they call it.”
Regardless of the media’s positions on this most important issue, the fact is that Nakoa (Koa) Charles Bear is now the Heir To The Throne of the National Hot Tub Dog.
Media representatives for NaKoa, PoolAndSpa.com Inc., and Mr. Harrison’s team publicly state that “Koa is a loving animal. So is Cody and all other dogs who have had the privilege to hold this position. Although we have been troubled by the recent legal issues regarding the “National Hot Tub Dog”, we are comforted that the Supreme Court Of The International Office Of Hot Tub Dog Affairs has sided with us, allowing the bequests of Cody, and his current administration, to be passed on to the the defendant Nakoa (Koa) Charles Bear.”
They continue “As has always been our political position, the office of the “National Hot Tub Dog” has never been a partisan title, and has always just supposed to be fun. People love hot tubs and dogs – so it was a natural fit.”
