Joe Biden gets his puppy
If you're keeping score, that's one political puppy down, one to go. (The Obamas are not expected to bring home their much-gossiped-about dog until after the inauguration, but that hasn't stopped everyone from Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan to actor Jamie Foxx from weighing in on what breed they should choose.)
Vice president-elect Joe Biden purchased a male German Shepherd puppy recently from breeder Linda Brown of East Coventry Township, Pennsylvania.
About her meeting with Biden, Brown told the Daily Local News, "He was very gracious...He hugged and kissed all of the shepherds." Brown will keep the puppy until after the inauguration.
Biden has promised to let his grandchildren name the puppy, a spokeswoman told the Associated Press.
