It's a doggy redux: Vice President-elect Joe Biden, who upset PETA and the Humane Society for buying a purebred German Shepherd puppy from a breeder, tells ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that he's also going to get a dog from the pound. Biden explained he and his wife wanted to two dogs, so they'd be companions, "We're going to have more than one puppy...I've had German Shepherds since I was a kid and I've trained them and shown them in the past. So I wanted a German Shepherd and we're going to get a pound dog, which my wife wants, who is hopefully a Golden [Retriever]." Thrilled, PETA is sending the Bidens and their dogs some presents, like soy pig ears and "coupons that he can give the pup that are good for tummy rubs and long walks." Biden also told Stephanopoulos, "The economy is in much worse shape than we thought it was in. There is no short run other than keeping the economy from absolutely tanking." You can see the interview tomorrow morning on This Week.
