Secret Service dog protecting Vice President Joe Biden at Landrieu fundraiser killed in fall

WWL-TV’s Katie Moore is reporting that a Secret Service dog protecting Vice President Joe Biden was killed in a fall from a parking garage roof as Biden spoke at a fundraiser tonight.

Biden was speaking at a fundraiser for Sen. Mary Landrieu, and he managed to show his personal brand of, um, enthusiasm. Sure, it’s just Joe Being Joe™ again, but doesn’t even the vice president himself get tired of being Joe?

Did we hear that correctly?

Also a compliment (we think, but it’s hard to tell without hearing it firsthand) was Biden’s assurance that Landrieu “makes the case for Louisiana, and everybody knows that if they don’t vote with her, she’ll make their lives miserable. She can exasperate the hell out of everybody and make them feel better for it.”

We’d feel better if the dog hadn’t been killed, but maybe now we can have a moratorium on Seamus Romney jokes?

    My condolences to the dog :(

    Biden kills dogs, Obama eats them.

    I read that the K9 got confused and inadvertently licked Biden’s hand, instead of it’s own azz and was overcome by high levels of ‘dope’.

    • Boon Companion

      I will duly note your plainly expressed sorrow over the loss of a dog who worked his poor tail off all his life for these jackasses, was handled irresponsibly, and wrongfully killed.

      In fact, this dog reminds me of a few Marines I can think of.

      • Burt Zerker

        Still no word on what Biden inadvertently licked

        • Boon Companion

          What are the odds he licked Landrieu. I say slim to none.

          • Burt Zerker

            Do they even have shots for that?

        • WisconsinPatriot

          Isn’t it some kinda frog that makes you crazy when you lick it?

      • Burt Zerker

        Just ask Hillary,..she’ll tell ya,..”what difference at this point does it make”

  • HARP2

    After working for Biden……it was probably suicide.

      …probably a Lassie video on YouTube….

    Poor dog. Was probably (definitely) smarter and more noble than the people he’s protecting :(

    • mike_in_kosovo

      Since those people were Democrats, isn’t that a given?

      • CR

        You are right. Corrected!

    The last elections were less than 90 days ago, and we’re already campaigning? ugh…

  • meeester

    “Killed” sounds like an act committed against the dog. The dog died after a fall. geez. Though I am open to hearing more about the potential for suicide since it probably hear our vice President speaking. ( nice choice Obama Biden voters. You’re the best! eyes rolling)

  • nc

    I understand the dog was protecting the VP, but he wasn’t doing it unattended. Who was minding the dog? How could this have happened?

    Aren’t these highly trained dogs? Which means a lot of taxpayer investment, right? Will there be any journalistic inquiry about this incident?

  • Zanshi

    Obama heard the news and planned a feast.

  • fishydude

    Someone tried to prove did could fly.
    Only irresponsible handling could have let the fall happen.

  • Joe W.

    A waste of a well trained dog.

  • lainer51

    Poor dog.. probably been trying to find a way out since Nov. 6.

  • Obama Lies

    So let’s see…
    Obama EATS then.
    Biden causes them to commit suicide.
    But Romney was the bad guy for putting the dog carrier on the car’s roof…

  • GaryTheBrave

    Three people dogs naturally fear:

    1. The Vet

    2. The Dogcatcher

    3. The President

    4. The Vice President

    Please note these are not necessarily in order.


      You get extra points from me for doing a joke within a joke. LOL

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      Very good!

      No “three letter” words, though? ;~)}

      I have problems w/your contention that dogs “fear” The Village Idiot, (TVI)… allow me to amplify:

      Dogs can sense things people can’t. From my experience w/dogs, it seems to me, dogs would perceive TVI as a fireplug, or a particularly odor-eminating lamppost, or perhaps an unusually messy trashcan.

      More something to mark than to fear, if you see what I’m driving at…

  • Tumbleweed

    What a waste of a good dog!

  • Brian Roastbeef

    Odd, it fell. I had just assumed Landrieu sat on it… or ate it.

    But by all means keep using those campaign photos from 2002, Mary. You’re fooling almost half of blind voters.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    I’ve been around dogs for all my 97 years. On the farm, before and after (and in some cases, during) military service. I’ve been 3 years watching and helping my son train Security Dogs (Military, Police, Rescue, Guard & Protector), and Service Dogs. He’s also a veterinarian in addition to being a breeder/trainer.

    While living w/them I’ve helped out as a receptionist after I stopped working full time at the Bakery and I thought I’d heard every strange story of “dog accident”, (including a dog getting his head stuck in an expensive — $800.00 insured value — antique vase).

    How can a dog “accidentally” fall off a multilevel garage?

    I don’t see how it could happen… accidentally.

    Nor can I — all joking aside — see a reason for The Village Idiot to kill a dog by tossing him over the safety fence or pushing him over the safety wall.

    There’s something else going on…

    Was the dog’s name “Skeet“, perchance?

    Doesnt disaster follow this clown everywhere!? A motorcade cop died for Joe The Joker Biden. Other accidents have followed in his wake. He is a crude crasss lying worhless… This bomb sniffing dog was smarter and a lot more class
