The new puppy's cute. But what puppy isn't?
(OK, except chihuahuas).
But Joe and his wife Jill had a similar arrangement. If he and Obama won in November, they'd get a dog. And just to make sure the Veep-elect didn't forget, Jill taped up different photos of dogs in his plane during the campaign (maybe even on his harrowing helicopter experience).
Bought a dog
Not one to disappoint, Biden lived up to his promise Saturday and purchased a pooch - a three month old German Shepherd from a breeder in East Coventry, Pennsylvania (only 104 miles from his hardscrabble roots in Scranton, PA).
The name of the dog? Doesn't have one yet. He's letting his granddaughters have the honors.
Why a German Shepherd? Biden likes 'em. He's had three before and apparently they've worked out.
