California Corgi Warms Up Sacramento

Being born and raised in California, and a dog lover, I am only too thrilled to read stories like these. After voting in Jerry Brown as our new governor, Californians also welcomed a new first dog, Sutter Brown.

Sutter, looking a little like an adorable mini looking Cleo, is a 7-year-old Pembroke Welsh corgi.  You might know what a corgi looks like, even if you don't know the name, because this dog breed has been the favorite of Queen Elizabeth II since she was 18 years old. Did you see Helen Mirren in The Queen?

The Queen has been photographed and shown over the years with her corgis as much as Oprah has with her cocker spaniels.

The difference today with Sutter, and maybe this is because he is part of Governor Brown's life and Jerry Brown marches to the beat of his own drummer, but Sutter is already on Twitter. Yes, you can follow his corgi adventures here @SutterBrown.
