Delaware: Maybe it's not so boring after all

Delaware, the first state in the union, may be on the verge of becoming the first state to officially recognize the magnificence of the pug. Legislation introduced Thursday would make the pug the state dog of Delaware. I believe this would make me the de facto spiritual adviser of the second-smallest state. Rep. Robert Valihura, the bill's sponsor, said he introduced this progressive legislation at the request of a pug-caretaking constituent. According to the bill, the pug is "a small, intelligent, and much revered dog" that is "an excellent representative of the state of Delaware." I cannot argue with that.

In case you were wondering, here is a list of state dogs:

Louisiana: Catahoula Leopard Dog
Maryland: Chesapeake Bay Retriever
Massachusetts: Boston Terrier
North Carolina: Plott Hound
Pennsylvania: Great Dane
South Carolina: Boykin Spaniel
Virginia: American Foxhound (state animal)
Wisconsin: American Water Spaniel

I need to move to Massachusetts.

They need to declare the pug to be the national dog and be done with it.
