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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

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!
