Governor Cuomo introduced the newest member of his administration while speaking with the New York Conference of Mayors at the Executive Mansion in Albany.

He welcomed Captain, a 14-week old Siberian Shepard mix, as New York's first puppy!

Cuomo says it was his daughters' idea, and they are nowhere to be found now that the puppy is here. 

"His name is Captain. I got outvoted by my daughters. I wanted to name him Excelsior, state motto. Wouldn't that have been a great name?" said Cuomo.
