By now, you’ve probably heard that the Greek economy is in free fall. What you may not know is that protesters have taken to the streets, and are apparently being inspired by a dog!
According to Reuters News Service, a mutt affectionately known as “Riot Dog” has been present at every riot in Athens since 2008. The dog apparently doesn’t mind the noise of the confrontations between rioters and police.
Posters have been hung stating, “Pepper spray? Riot Dog eats it for breakfast.” The dog has also been given his own Facebook page.
The dog’s identity is uncertain, but some call him Kanellos or Louk ( after a type of sausage he likes).
In a throwback to the World War II days of Kilroy, the slogan “Riot Dog was here” has been sprayed on walls and even on Athenian police cars.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
