There may be plenty of newspaper lying around the governor’s residence in the coming weeks but it’s not because Gov. Dayton is worried about his press clippings.
Dayton’s new puppy, Wanamingo, will arrive at the governor’s residence tomorrow afternoon. Dayton met his new dog for the first time yesterday but his office says the dog will arrive at the governor’s residence on Sunday afternoon.
Dayton announced he would get a new puppy after one of his two German Shepherds died in January.
No word on whether Mingo will be trained to do his business on press clippings that don’t cast Dayton in a favorable light. One thing is for sure, that dog will be on at least one TV newscast on Sunday night.
