Cuomo introduces latest member of administration — a puppy named Captain (VIDEO)

ALBANY — On Tuesday, while speaking with the New York Conference of Mayors at the Executive Mansion, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo took some time to introduce a new staffer who was a little wiggly in front of the press — but no one seemed to mind.Captain, a 14-week-old Siberian, Shepherd and Malamute mix, was an idea of Gov. Cuomo’s daughters. They “had to have a puppy. They are nowhere to be found now. Dad has the puppy,” he told the assembled members of the press, to general laughter.Like any new puppy parent, Gov. Cuomo is working on house-training his new pet, with varied results. “The puppy is working on housebreaking. We call it mansion training here. … He goes outside. He’ll stay outside for any period of time he deems necessary and he will then come inside and urinate as soon as he gets inside. He will only urinate indoors,” the governor said.And, although Gov. Cuomo may run the state, it’s very clear who’s in charge at home. “His name is Captain. I got outvoted by my daughters. I wanted to name him Excelsior, state motto. Wouldn’t that have been a great name?” he said.For further photos of the governor and Captain, visit his Flickr page at http://wdt.me/cuomoandcaptain.
