Wanamingo's doggone pleased: Gov. Dayton names new puppy after southeast Minnesota town
A small Goodhue County city is getting statewide recognition after the governor chose it as his new puppy's namesake.
Gov. Mark Dayton has named his new black German Shepherd "Wanamingo" or "Mingo" for short - a name city officials appreciate.
"It's nice to be recognized by name," Wanamingo City Administrator Mike Boulton said. "Maybe people can get a geography lesson, too."
