I love both cats and dogs but I'm definitely more of a dog person. So when I heard that Minnesota might be getting an official state dog I got really excited! All states should have an official state dog. What the heck, they should all have official state cats too!

Before I get too carried away, there's a bill being proposed at a St. Paul news conference today proposing that the state of Minnesota makes the Labrador Retriever the official state dog. All of you lab owners out there are jumping for joy right now, I'm sure!

Why the lab? I have no clue! I'm wondering if it has something to do with Raven, who's the "mascot" of the TV show "Minnesota Bound." (Raven is a black lab.)

Whatever the reason, I'm all for having an official state dog. We have an official state everything else so why not!
