Put up your Dukes…

The fine people of Minnesota (to be enunciated clearly in Minnesotian) have again demonstrated their penchant for progressive politics.

Duke, a nine-year-old Great Pyrenees, has won his third term as mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota, in a landslide election victory. He also (apparently) has the highest approval ratings in the United States.

This story pleases me more than it probably should. But I’m happy to just roll (around on the grass) with it.

Yay Duke yay!

      1. PS I loved the post you did that you linked from EC’s blog. I finally figured you were in SA (as am I, South Australia 😁)
        Your family looks beautiful!
        And I so want to go to Iceland, and the Czech Republic… I was nearby in Germany once but didn’t have time.
        Haven’t had a chance to be bedazzled by videos yet 😁
        Laughed at the descriptions of your dogs!

      2. Thank you! It’s a work in progress. I saw something similar on somebody else’s blog and I like having a sense of who people are when I read their blog. And while it feels a little like a highlights reel… I am hopeful that it conveys some sort of… I dunno… menschkeit… you know… that this is a real person kinda vibe.
