The other day the President said, I know you've had some rough times, and I want to do something that will show the nation what faith that I have in you, in your maturity and sense of responsibility. He paused, then said, would you like a puppy?
--Dan Quayle (b.1947) 44th US Vice President under George Bush (1989-93)

Say hello to Teddy, a.k.a. "Short Round", a two pound Boston Terrier puppy. His proud papa, Andy, is a recent Milligan grad who's staying with me this summer awaiting the start of seminary. Even though Teddy's only four or five inches tall, he's all attitude -- chasing my 65 pound Duke around the house by threatening to continue to sink his pointy little teeth into him. Better Duke, than us. Fortunately, Duke's been tolerant of the lil' guy and hasn't responded in kind. Yet. Here's a video of Teddy the Boston Terror!


  1. "Teddy" is indeed "...all attitude". What a sweetheart boy!

  2. Oh my goodness.........he is sooooooooooooo adorable......

    Teddy is a great name for him! I want one :o)
