Joe Biden, the Veep-Elect, tried to do something good, something noble. He went out and got himself a nice new dog. But messed it all up and angered just about everyone in the process. Well, no surprise there, I guess. He went out and got this cute little German Shepherd puppy. That dog may look cute now, but it will grow to be a big, vicious dog, the kind who bullies others in the dog park. So, first off, why not a cockapoo, Mr. Biden?

He got the dog from a shady breeder, a Pennsylvania breeder who was cited several days later by the state Department of Agriculture for several violations, including a failure to produce proof of rabies vaccinations and maintenance issues. All the breeder could offer in her defense was a big “Oops,” insisting the records were lost the night before Biden’s visit as she was cleaning up.


That angered a lot of people, but I think that's OK, it's like the same kinda place I came from . . no shame in that. But now he's all embarrassed and flip-flopping and says he's gonna get a second dog, from a shelter no less, like that's what he planned all the time:


After coming under fire for buying a puppy from a breeder in PA (where violations have been cited in the past), Vice President-elect Joe Biden is vowing to add another dog to his growing family. This time, he’ll get one from a shelter. “We’re gonna get a pound dog that my wife wants,” Biden said.

And to make matters worse, Mr. Biden got the puppy to get a jump on the Obamas, trying to show up his new boss. Is this the kind of 'change we need?' Where's Hillary?
By the way, have you noticed, as I have, that the Obamas still don't have that dog?

Happy Birthday Big Brother

Happy Birthday!! It's hard to believe you're 133 today, and yet you don't look a day over 20. I hope the owner on that farm you're on remembers to give you an extra bowl of beef gravy.

Have you seen my daddy?

My daddy hasn't been home for a few nights. He is rarely this long away from me and I'm worried he may be lost or hurt or sick. He's not quite himself when he doesn't get the chance to chase me around the basement or scratch me behind the ears. If you've seen him or heard from him, please let me know. Or ask him to send me an e-mail.

I got a lot of feedback on my last post. Apparently, my readers are very passionate about the Civil War. Several of you noticed a small error, which I'd like to correct. The stone wall I referred to was not actually a stone wall, as reported, but was really a general named Stonewall Jackson. But he was so hard to get around that he was like a stone wall, get it? So the monument on the battlefield is not really a piece of him but rather just that, a monument. And come to think of, the nice park ranger probably never really said it was really a wall. I guess I was looking at the squirrels when she was talking about that part. The error was strictly my own.

What a whirlwind of history my family has been taking me through over the past few months. Here I am on the famous Chancellorsville battlefield, where a long time ago a lot of people fought with guns and cannons. So Tommy, what was the battle all about, you ask? I got a tour from a nice park ranger and learned all about it. You see, back in the nineteenth century, the people of the south part of the US held all dogs as slaves, and even some people too. And the people of the north didn't think that was right. So they had a war, called the Civil War and they fought some of it right here. The mean people from the south, who held all dogs as slaves and even some people did real good here at Chancellorsville and a lot of other battles. But you know how the south did it? They cheated. They did it with sneak attacks, like here at Chancellorsville, they didn't just come out and fight, but snuck around lots of bushes and trees and attacked the rookie guys on the right who weren't expecting it, rather than come after the real men of the north in the middle. And the north had this courageous general named Fighting Joe who wanted badly to get at those slave-holding people of the south but he never knew where they were so he didn't get the chance. But that was OK, because he brought his girls with him so it wasn't a total waste of his time.

And the south had this secret weapon, a big stone wall they would cart from battle to battle and the north couldn't get past it. But right here at Chancellorsville, the south soldiers, who weren't too bright, smashed up their own stone wall during this battle and there's just this little bit of it left you can see here and they left it here on the battlefield as a rememberence. It's so tiny now that no one would have any trouble just going right around it.

Well, even in spite of what happened here and a lot of the other battles, the north won and all the dogs and the people were freed once and for all.
