Having a state dog is the dumbest thing I've heard of this week.
It's the one thing I trust governments to do, otherwise idol hands are the devil's workshop for them.
1st to have a state dog was Maryland with the Chesapeake Bay Retriever.

Georgia, Bulldogs
Tennessee... I think the Bloodhound would be a good one
Kentucky probably Coon Hounds
and
Iowa, the Corn Dog aka Pronto Pups :)

You're right, Butch. They need something to keep them occupied aside from politicking.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

Apparently the WI state dog is the American water spaniel. Did not know before, still do not care....

Considering all that has transpired here this week, that says a lot.

Smartest I have seen is a breed I was recently introduced too.
The McNabb heeler or shepherd as it is called.
Insight into the McNab:

http://stockmanship.com/?p=313

I ranched for years in the county north of Mendocino.The ranches mentioned in the Bud Williams article above were located in my locale and the Wiggin's place adjoined the ranch I leased at the time. Both Mendocino & Humboldt counties are characterized by expansive, steep and rugged north coastal rangeland. My first stock dogs were McNabs from long time breeder Doug Lane whose dogs were highly regarded. McNabs (and cross bred versions) remain popular with Northern CA ranchers.

Are McNabbs in any way related to McGruffs?

I personally would prefer to have two virginia foxhounds in congress than the two democrat senators we currently have....the hounds would definitely be smarter than Tim Kaine...Warner is smart enough but he is just another party hack....I sure would like to know what power in the democratic party keeps all the democrats in lock step with the democratic leadership....most of them would rather take up bear wrassling than cross crazy nancy or upchuck schumer.

That's easy, they're in the business of getting re-elected.

well republicans are in the same business but darned few of them march in lockstep with anybody...a good many of them vote with the dems with some regularity.....but the dems are always unanimous....apparently they have something on almost all of their people that would cause them to be unelected if exposed....of course the crazy ones in the crazy districts will get reelected anyway no matter what...

we have let congress get way out of hand and it is going to take a terrible upheaval to ever get back to any semblance of normalcy.

Dunno. Searched the web and the only thing that came up was the cartoon dog by the same name. :D
Guessing your reference was to little known dogs likely developed in your area/Southern states. Tell me about them.

Mcgruff was the crime fighting dog. He was being a little facetious.

McGruff ended up in prison in 2014, sentenced to 16 years in the federal pound for drug possession, possession of illegal firearms, including a grenade launcher and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

Yes, no, McGruff crime dog, like M-5 said. Remember the great Fred McGriff, baseball player? When he played for the Atlanta Braves, his nickname was crime dog.
