SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The state of Maine has an official animal, bird and even cat. This legislative session, however, could provide us with a state dog. State lawmakers will vote on LD 107 which would make the Labrador Retriever Maine's state dog.
Stacy Gile has owned labs most of her life and now spends her time with her two black labs Jack and Amos.
"We realized really quickly that everywhere you went you saw labs," said Gile.
Last summer, Gile decided to contact her local lawmakers to find out how to make labs the official state dog.
