The Kansas official dog is half black lab, half something else.
I could have sworn there was a black lab on the Great Seal... We should add one. Can we get the Legislature to add a black labrador to the Great Seal? They've obviously got tons of time on their hands this session...
Does KS really need an "official State dog?"
Why not have a state dog, we have a clown for a governor.
As usual, the JW doesn't offer an option for "other."
We don't need the legislature spending any time or money picking a state dog, no matter how cute said dog is.
When they run out of time at the end of their session and haven't completed the really important tasks I'd hate to think they'd spent even 5 precious minutes talking about a state dog.
Who cares if we have an official "state dog". How about spending more time dealing with school financing and other budget issues. How about more level headed discussions of substance about issues that effect peoples lives and help those in need? Wouldn't that be novel...
And folks, buy a Cairn if you're jonesing for a connection to Wizard of Oz beyond the refrigerator magnets, but for the rest of you, don't forget the perfectly fine mixed breeds at your local animal shelter that need a good home. They'll be grateful if you do.
You can name your new dog Toto no matter what breed it is.

Face palm! That's gonna keep me chucklin' for a little while.
How about a "Maybe" button? Or "Undecided"? Or "All of the above." That's what we need. "Yes," "No," and "All of the above." Get to it, LJW!
The Wizard of Oz thing should die. Now. As of it isn't irritating enough when I travel outside of this state and the people I encounter think a 70-year-old joke is still funny, now we have elected officials considering legislation that would further encourage those morons from other states to continue with their unfunny "You're not in Kansas anymore" remarks.
Oh well, the state's already a bad joke why not just embrace it and go forward with this crap. Then our elected officials can say they actually accomplished something.
I agree! Enough of Dorothy and the Wizard. It's embarrassing and makes us the butt of a worn-out joke. "You're not in Kansas anymore" is a widespread insult, even in movies and TV shows. I cringe.
The movie might have ended so differently sans Toto
Does Kansas have an indigenous dog?
If Kansas is to have a state dog, it shouldn't be no sissy-@$$ yappy dog. We are not sissy-@$$ people.
I vote for prairie dog---what could be more Kansas than calling a rodent a dog?
Point taken, but I still think it's a good idea.
Following this logic, the state tree should be the enchanted talking apple tree.
The state flower should be poppies.
The state alternative transportation method should be brooms or balloons.
And let's just make the state weather feature a tornado.
Why stop with the dog?
"The state flower should be poppies."
I rather like that idea.
The state dog should be the coyote.
Why do we need an offical dog and why is this a priority? What will be next step? A $100K per year bureacracy to maintain such a State royal dog????
Is this like Nero playing the violin while Rome burns? Read my lips - It's the economy stupid.
Oh good grief!!! Did one of our tax paid officials bring this to the floor or congress? Gee, why don't we invest 30 grand on a private research firm to figure out if it is necessary or not? Get a frigg'n life people!!
if they want a dog how about some of the legislators
Not to mention, smarter than the governor.
You know, there is a Wheaton Terrier, and we all know Kansas is known for it's wheat.
