Pet Pop Quiz Answer

Oola - a Noble Dane
Living in Pennsylvania and being an animal lover I knew what breed the state dog was. I didn’t know the story about when it was voted on. Check it out in the answer.


Q: Each state has a state flower and state bird, but did you know some states have state dogs? Pennsylvania calls a well known giant breed as its state dog. Name the breed.


A: Pennsylvania’s state dog is the Great Dane. Most state dog breeds get their designation because the breed originated there, the Great Dane’s connection to PA is through founder William Penn who was thought to have owned one.

When the PA legislature voted for the Great Dane to be the state dog, the members voted with yips, growls and barks and the speaker confirmed the vote by saying “the arfs have it”. How’s that for government!?
