California 'first dog' Sutter gets a sister (i.e., Jerry and Anne Gust Brown get a PUPPY!)

Major Breaking News: Jerry and Anne Gust Brown have a new dog.

Colusa “Lucy” Brown, a two-month-old “Borgie” (Corgi-Border Collie mix), was revealed to the world this afternoon via Twitter:

Sutter responded to the Tweet: “I’m still First Dog, right?”

Here’s Colusa Brown’s bio from the Governor’s website:

“Colusa “Lucy” Brown (@ColusaBrown) joined the Brown family in May 2015 and is already learning what it takes to be “First Dog” from her big brother, Sutter Brown. When she is not out exploring the family ranch in Colusa County with the Governor and First Lady, she can be found guarding the office and herding staff at the State Capitol. Lucy was born on March 13, 2015 in Red Bluff, California in a five puppy “Borgie” litter to proud parents Oliver “Ollie” Winston (a pure bred Pembroke Welsh Corgi) and Chick Magnet (half Border Collie and half Pembroke Welsh Corgi).”

Here’s a link to my 2013 interview with Sutter. Seriously.
