A Secret Service dog fell to its death Saturday night while doing a sweep of a multi-story parking deck near a hotel where Vice President Joe Biden was speaking.

The Belgian Malinois fell from the roof of the six-story deck adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans where Biden was speaking at a fundraiser for U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu, reported CNN affiliate WWL.

    The picture is the wrong breed,it is a German shepard,wrong animal is right,wrong picture.Of course if Obama is a muslim,muslims hate dogs,maybe Obama kicked the dog off of the roof.He just has a portugese water dog to throw off suspicion.Someone feed him a big ham sandwich!!!!!!SS should not be too sad,if they just pretend that it was a civilian’s dog, in a botched SWAT raid and the SWAT team shot the dog.Funny how the Nazi SS and the secret service are both S/S,creepy.
