DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware has an official state flower, a state tree, a state fish and a state bird. Now, it could soon have an official state canine.

The state House is set to vote on a bill naming the Golden Retriever as Delaware's official state dog.

The bill to be voted on Tuesday outlines a host of attributes for the Golden Retriever, such as its intelligence and friendliness, its love for hunting, and its ability to be trained for search and rescue work.
