This week Governor Cuomo admitted in a press conference that while he might run the state of New York, it is his daughters that run his home. According to the governor's statement, Cuomo was repeatedly asked by his daughters to get a puppy. He says that they finally convinced him to get a puppy, now that he has one in the Governor's Mansion, the daughters have apparently 'disappeared' and it's just him and the dog.

The puppy in question is named 'Captain.' Again the Governor was overruled. Cuomo wanted to name the puppy, 'Excelsior' after the New York State motto. His daughters nixed it.

The dog is believed to be a mix of Siberian, shepherd and malamute. The next steps for the governor and Captain? Completing Captain's house training. According to the statement released this week, Captain's favorite place to go to the bathroom? Inside the governor's mansion.
