Del. Lawmakers Debate State Dog
DOVER, Del. (AP) - May 11, 2006 -- Pint-sized pugs could be in for a big honor. Delaware lawmakers are considering a bill that would make the pug the state dog.
Representative Robert Valihura Junior, who introduced the bill, says the tiny dog is an appropriate breed to represent the nation's second-smallest state.
According to the bill, the pug is "a small, intelligent, and much revered dog."
Valihura says the idea of making the pug the state dog comes from a pug-owning constituent.
