Rendell & Corbett Reach Consensus...On First Dogs

Gov. Rendell is holding a post-election press conference in Harrisburg right now and told the gathered reporters he has reached out to Governor-elect Tom Corbett about the transition to the new administration.  Rendell noted that Corbett's family's dog died in the spring and the state Attorney General asked advice on keeping pet in the governor's mansion. 

Rendell, a well-known dog lover, urged Corbett to rescue two dogs and set them up in style at the mansion.  Corbett's wife, Rendell said, has been pushing for two dogs.

"I told him the residence is a great place for dogs because of the wonderful fenced in gardens," Rendell said.
