Joe Biden identifies with his new puppy

Veep-elect Joe Biden may not have gotten a fat portfolio -- or any portfolio -- from Barack Obama, but he does have his new German Shepherd puppy to comfort him and get him the occasional bit of media coverage.

The latest is that Joe has named the little guy, Champ. If not entirely original, the pup's name "has sentimental significance for Biden, whose dad always told him growing up, 'Get up champ,' whenever he was having a tough time." You have to wonder, did Joe's pop also say "Sit, Champ," or "Shake, Champ?" Just asking.
