Sutter Brown, California’s First Dog, is doing his share to close the state budget deficit.

Sutter BrownSteve Glazer, the Orinda political advisor who managed Jerry Brown’s successful gubernatorial campaign last year, today tweeted a picture of a $665.56 check made out to California’s General Fund from San Mateo-based CafePress.com, where Gov. Jerry Brown’s pup is peddling a line of First Dog paraphernalia. Sutter is donating his $3 from each sale to the taxpayers of California.

“Controller’s revenue estimate misses the mark. New @SutterBrown contribution to state deficit reduction,” Glazer captioned the twitpic.

Glazer said this is actually Sutter’s second contribution; a CafePress check for the Corgi’s commissions last month brought in $1,184.57.

Good on you, Sutter. That’s $1,850.13 down, $9,599,998,149.87 to go.
