California’s First Dog Decreasing Deficit

Sutter the Corgi an asset to his state
By Karen B. London PhD, April 2011

California Governor Jerry Brown’s Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Sutter, is so popular that his fans are buying products from his line of merchandise. His Twitter name @Sutter Brown is on T-shirts, tote bags, tank tops, hoodies, infant onesies and caps. For every sale made, $3 goes to paying down the state of California’s budget deficit. Despite the whopping $700 that has already been made, California’s deficit remains a top priority for politicians and citizens.

 
Sutter is a bit of a celebrity in Sacramento. In a recent interview with the press, he speaks out about his new position and his own take on bipartisan politics.
