And your State Dog is...

My friend's Cairn terrier, Bailey
Kansas just announced their state dog--the Cairn terrier. Why? Because it is the breed of Toto, from the Wizard of Oz! When I mentioned this recently, an astute friend asked if other states had state dogs. I promised to look it up.
So, here is the answer!

 Alaska-- Alaskan Malamute
Louisiana--Catahoula Leopard Dog
Pennsylvania--Great Dane
South Carolina--Boykin Spaniel
North Carolina-- Plott hound
Texas-- Blue Lacy
Massachussets-- Boston Terrier
Virginia--American Foxhound
New Hampshire--Chinook
Wisconsin-- American Water Spaniel

If your state doesn't have a state dog, what do you think it should be?

Washington State must be the land of the Dachshunds!!!! Wieners unite! I'm not just saying that because I'm a dachshund.
