Vermont gov. gives press 1 last dog and pony show

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - December 23, 2010

The Republican governor, who leaves office next months after eight years, appeared at his weekly press conference Wednesday with a miniature horse and a Labrador retriever, in a light-hearted jab at his image. The press corps poked some fun, too, giving him a yellow Wal-Mart greeter T-shirt and a set of scissors to kid him about his penchant for ribbon-cuttings and other ceremonial event.

Douglas will be succeeded by Democrat Peter Shumlin.
