Puppygate


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?

First of all, if Joe waited for Barak to get a dog first, he'd never get a dog. Second, he didn't get a cockapoo because he wanted a real dog. Third, if you get bullied in the park, get some balls, er, sorry, I forgot your daddy had them crushed. Fourth, the conditions at the place Joe got the dog were just fine, they had the Michael Vick Seal of Approval. Fifth, if you are unhappy about all of this you should have worked harder during the election.

Billy,

What do you mean "he didn't get a cockapoo because he wanted a real dog"? I'm a real dog. I ruff, and I speak, and I sit, I sniff, and like to go on walks and play and I like to eat bologna. What else does a dog do?
