Mari Culver said her two young children are responsible for Buck joining the family. "The kids and I were shopping out and stopped at that pet food and acquatic center out on 22nd Street in West Des Moines and we came home with an Animal Rescue League puppy," the first lady said.
The governor said their children, John and Claire, are excited have a puppy. "Our cat, also from the Animal Rescue League, what, 15 years ago -- Fran is adjusting, let's just say," the governor told the crowd.
The young pup doesn't have a pedigree, but Mari Culver guesses the dog is a mix of many breeds. "He's got a little bit of everything we think. We're not quite sure -- yellow lab, shepherd, setter, maybe some collie," she said. "He likes to roll in the snow, so I think some huskie."
