Dog elected mayor in Minnesota

A small Minnesota village has a new mayor. Duke, the dog is Cormorant's newest mayor.

The 12 people who live there elected the 7-year-old dog as its leader.

Duke may not understand politics too well but he's been doing a great job guarding the town.

He even makes sure cars aren't going past the speed limit.

Duke will be sworn in on Sunday.

He won't be getting a salary, but a pet store has agreed to donate a year's supply of food to reward Duke for his service.

Smart voters.

Duke will work cheap, be loyal to his constituents, probably won't take bribes, and treat folks like he respects 'em.

Is this the beginning of a trend?

That's a wonderful story.  One of our dogs guards our neighborhood kind of like that.  There are a couple of neighbors he is fond of and he parades up and down the street "on watch".  He is susceptible to bribes though, one neighbor cooks hot dogs for him - and another neighbor invites him to pool parties on the weekend. 

Sounds like the town made an excellent choice!
