Puppy Love!

From MLive:

After gathering the whole family around the Christmas tree this morning, Vice President-elect Joe Biden’s grandchildren announced the name of his new German shepherd puppy.

They chose to call the new pup “Champ,” Biden’s press secretary, Elizabeth Alexander said Thursday.

The name has sentimental significance for Biden, whose dad always told him growing up, “Get up champ,” whenever he was having a tough time. Biden often mentioned it in his campaign speeches, where he would recall his father saying “Any time you get knocked down champ – get up!”

A few weeks ago Biden picked out a month-old male German shepherd from a breeder in Chester County, Pa. He was promised the post-election dog by his wife, Jill, who would tape pictures of different dogs on the back of the seat in front of Biden on his campaign plane.

Biden also revealed that his family will be getting another dog, this time from a pound, for Jill Biden, perhaps a Golden Retriever.

    I just hope that the Biden’s dogs are not frightened by the lingering odor of Cerberus around the vice-presidential mansion.

  2. jeb,
    it’s not the odor of cerberus that worries me. i am afraid that the vile smell of cheney piss might frighten the sweet little puppy!

    Awww, nonnie. Sweet, cute, feel-good posters again. Thank you!

    My sister-in-law’s family just got two puppies this week. They have always been a “big dog clan,” (as in Great Danes 150-185 lbs big) but this time, they went to the opposite extreme. One is a “Morkie” (Maltese + Yorkie) and the other is a “Porkie” (Pekingese + Yorkie). Full grown, they will weigh between 4 and 7 lbs.

    Right now, they are only 8 weeks old and very tiny. They had to put bells on them because they kept losing them and they were worried about stepping on them! I get to see them tomorrow.


  4. hi mauigirl! šŸ˜€

    welcome to the raisin! i thought it would be nice to start the week with something positive and cute for a change.

    hope you will stop by again!

  5. nightowl,
    as i said to mauigirl, i thought it would be nice to have a positive poster for a change. i hope you take pictures of the new puppies. i feel my resolve crumbling, and i am being pulled toward the animal shelter. when i go for a walk and see a doggie, it makes my day.

    hey, if you get a chance, i did the top comment diary over at the big orange.

    So you told me to come over and visit…and here I am! And I was the one who mentioned bad pennies….

    I see you are in full form, nonnie! Great graphics, great humor. A real pleasure.

    Now we march forward into the new year, full of hope and trepidation. On Jan 20, just before Obama puts his hand up to take the oath of office, I will remove my shoes and throw them across the room as my gesture of disdain for the departing office holder. Then I will pray for the best.

  8. nightowl,
    poor sardonyx has had to do so many diaries lately, and i wanted to give him a break, so i volunteered. i didn’t have a lot of time, so i just threw together some crap from here. whatever works, huh?

  9. oh, radiowalla, now you have made my day! šŸ˜€ you have no idea how happy i was to see you over at the tc diary, and your showing up here is icing on the cake!

    wouldn’t it be a stunning tribute to chimpy and all he has accomplished if he is pelted with thousands of shoes as he departs the white house for the last time? as for deadeye dick, i think he should be pelted with something, too. perhaps holy water!

    the door here is always open for you, radiowalla. please stop by whenever you can. only the best for you and yours in the new year.

  11. dcAp,
    deadeye dick reportedly owns dogs. but i bet they are robots covered with fur. šŸ˜‰

  12. Awww…Champ.
