Gov. Mark Dayton has a name for his new German shepherd puppy: Itasca.
While many people know Gov. Mark Dayton got a new puppy a few months ago, named Mingo, what they may not know — is that 4-month-old pup is a bona fide celebrity in her own right.
Gov. Mark Dayton’s new puppy, Wanamingo, was guest of honor at a state Capitol ceremony — but the black German shepherd that Dayton calls “Mingo” was more interested in sniffing carpet in the governor’s office.
Gov. Mark Dayton will welcome a new resident to his house on Sunday — a German Shepherd puppy.
