Dog Mayor to Retire From Office

After four years of serving the small town of Cormorant, Minnesota, Duke the Pyrenean Mountain Dog is resigning as mayor.

Mayor Duke has served four, one-year terms as ceremonial mayor of the western Minnesota town, but his owner, Dave Rick, say it's time for the 13-year-old pooch to retire. His primary duties during his time in office have been to lead parades and appear on billboards. The town is planning a special farewell parade in August to say goodbye to him. A local school teacher is also writing Duke's biography, which will chronicle his early days as a puppy all the way to the top office in town. (WLS-TV)
