Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

sutter.JPG Followers of state politics are familiar with Gov. Jerry Brown's corgi Sutter, who has his own bio on the governor's website, his own Facebook page and even his own Twitter account.

The First Dog made an appearance last weekend at the Sacramento SPCA's Doggie Dash in William Land Park. Sutter took a break from the canine 5K to make some two-legged friends, judging by this photo taken by Sally McKeag of California Strategies.

What was California's First Dog thinking here? Take a crack at captioning the charismatic corgi in the latest Capitol Alert Caption Contest.

For newcomers to the contest, here are the rules:

1. Look at the picture.
2. Write a caption.
3. E-mail it to us.

When sending in submissions, feel free to request anonymity. Only those willing to have their real names published, however, can win the grand prize: a $25 gift certificate to a capital coffee shop (entrants residing outside Sacramento can request any coffee chain).

Entries are due by Thursday, June 13 at 11:59 p.m. Send submissions to
