    Biden's Puppy Breeder: "Never, Never, Never Again"
    Woman is vilified for selling a pedigreed pup to the Bidens.

    Fifteen minutes of fame turned into four months of bitter remorse for the Chester County woman who sold the Bidens their adorable little German shepherd puppy.

    Linda Brown's been investigated, scorned and had her life threatened.

    "I thought when Joe Biden bought a puppy from me, what an honor," Brown told the Daily Local News. "Out of millions of breeders in the country, in the world, he picked me."

    That was December.

    When the story got out, Brown faced backlash from pet lovers who thought the Bidens should have opted for a shelter over a breeder to find their new puppy.

    PETA seized the moment as an opportunity to blame the killing of shelter animals on people who buy from breeders. The organization's TV commercial, "Buy One, Get One Killed" ran in Delaware after the Biden puppy story made headlines.

    Dog wardens from the state showed up at Brown's Wolf Den kennel, repeatedly, for inspections.

    "I was cited for a piece of kibble on the floor and five strands of dog hair. They took a picture of that, they walked around, snapped pictures and don't tell you why," Brown told the newspaper.

    She was found "not guilty" for each citation, but hiring a lawyer for the court hearings has cost her $4,000 so far in legal fees.

    Brown says she and Biden both received death threats from animal activists.

    "Never, never, never again," Brown said about selling a dog to anyone with a high profile.

    Her advice to breeders who've called about the Obama's puppy search: Don't do it!

    "It's been horrific since December," she said.

    Did the morons at PETA bother to inform the public that they KILL almost 90% of the animals they "Save"? My guess is no.

    I think the dumbest Veep of all time should have to pay back the legal fees to this woman and PETA should be sued for damages.

    Fixed.

    And I'll bet she's an Obama voter as well.

    No pity, no sympathy and she cant say she hadn't been warned of what was about to happen.

    That's President Obama to you.

    And...you're blaming her? Are you serious?

    I just read this article and felt like I was in the twilight zone. This woman suffers scorn, an investigation and death threats because she sold a dog? These nutbags are blaming her because Biden didn't rescue a dog? What freaking country am I living in? What the feck is going on.

    She had an impeccable record as far as inspections go and now she's out 4 grand because PETA and other bleeding-heart assholes are pissed because she breeds dogs? Fuck all of them.

    I'm starting a business where you can buy animal offsets if this shit keeps up.

    This almost made me spit pudding all over my computer screen. :D

    I'll sign on to buy your offsets, we can all get rich like Al Gore. Call it a "Pup & Trade" system.

    I'd love to see PETA put out of business for good.

    This is absurd and if it means breeders will refuse to sell to politicos and celebrates - good!

    I love my purebred dogs. I've had mutts and I don't have anything against them. I also sew a lot of my own clothes. I'm under no illusion that my sewing products have exactly the same fabric, fit, and design that I see in Vogue or on the rack. But I sew what I like and I like ultra-classic clothes. I don't want the government to peer into my sewing room.

    Dogs, clothes, vegetables, rainwater.....

    Leave people alone!

    The PA attorney general's office needs to launch an investigation into connections between PETA and the animal control board. There is something really fishy about how PETA got them to harrass this woman. Hopefully, the Secret Service is investigating the death threats this woman received, since Biden also got them.

    It's not impossible to believe that PETA people could go undercover and get jobs in the state's animal control office. It probably doesn't take an advanced degree to get an investigator's job-maybe not even a bachelor's degree. The applicants probably take a test, have an interview or two, and are given a drug test before they are hired.
