The governor of West Virginia has dubbed his pet bulldog, Babydog, the face of the state’s COVID-19 vaccine lottery.
On Friday, Mountain State Governor Jim Justice held a press conference featuring his first pooch, English bulldog Babydog, where he dubbed her the mascot of the incentive and urged West Virginians to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Justice cradled his pet and told viewers that if they were not planning to get the vaccine for their families and loved ones, they should “get vaccinated for Babydog.”
“That’s all there is to it,” Justice said in the video as Babydog gazed onward regally. “Now, she wants you vaccinated so badly, and she’s going to be the one to lead us on all these incentives.”

Justice said that both he and Babydog want West Virginians vaccinated and said his pooch came with him to “make you smile a little bit.”
