  • Kristie McClanahan

The greyhound is strong and beautiful and races for money, which reflects the entrepreneurial spirit of the Missourians of old. But he's also lazy and enjoys sprawling in the backyard with a beer, which reflects the pleasure-loving spirit of the Missourians of late.


  • Ian Froeb

Do not call her a Luvasz! Or a Kuvenberger! The Kuvasz-Leonberger doesn't take that kind of guff, which makes her a perfect representative of the Show-Me State. Also, she's really, really big, like the size of a pony, and it would feel good to tell Texas that our state dog is bigger than their Blue Lacy.

Valrhona Velvet Retriever

  • Aimee Levitt

She may look like an ordinary lab mix, but the Valrhona Velvet Retriever is constantly being underestimated, in much the same manner as Easterners underestimate Missourians. She is clever and wily and has had to live by her wits! Also, she loves Cardinals baseball and watched the World Series with the sort of rapt attention she usually focuses on chasing rabbits.
