Many states have official state mammals, Texas even has a state bat... Makes sense once ya think about it since many of the Texans I know are bat sh_t crazy.... But I digress.. Dogs are considered man's best friend, yet only 11 states have adopted an official state dog. Maryland was the first. Four other states have proposals open but the legislators can't agree, so in limbo,. Listing those last. But Kudos to Maine which is considering the Labrador Retriever (RIP Bob)
