The Governor of Maine and I have a very similar family history. He was on his own when he was a young boy and I was in a dog shelter at a young age. Someone very kind took him in, gave him shelter and love; and guess what, that’s just what Governor LePage did for me. They are the best family in the world.
Want to know something funny? Sometimes I think the Governor forgets my name. He usually calls me Buddy when he talks to me. (Just between you and me, I like it when he calls me Buddy.)
I have the best gig in the state. Don’t get me wrong, being the First Dog of Maine can be exhausting. I have lots of responsibilities around the Blaine House. Supervising the hallways and making sure I greet every visitor with a very thorough look over, and a hardy bark; it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!
I’ll keep you posted on what goes on inside the Blaine House – behind the scenes, if you know what I mean. You’ll meet the staff here and some of the guests, including some of the school kids who visit the Blaine House all through the year. They REALLY love me!!
