Riot-Dog !!!

Have you seen the news about those riots going on in Athens, Greece recently? Well, I found a story about a particular dog, now known as "Riot-Dog", who seems to love riots, and who appears in many of the photos of the rioting going on over there. I find this both hilarious as well as fascinating. Apparently, gleaning from the little bit of information available, Riot-Dog is a stray who lives in the area of the where the riots are now occurring, and has been fed by the neighborhood people for years now. And it's funny, but in all of the pictures you find of him (her?), he seems to be on the side of the people, either relaxing or sitting with them, and in other photos he's in attack mode against various groups of Athens riot police. Apparently Riot-Dog has his own political views, and knows who's side he's on! They also say that he's been participating in riots for two years now! He always has the same blue collar on in the photos, and he kind of reminds me of Forrest Gump shaking hands with Kennedy, or being in all of those other famous places in that movie. He's everywhere! Riot-Dog even has his own Facebook page now, which is at this Facebook link. My theory is that Riot-Dog is an action junkie; he loves being in the midst of all the commotion, and being a stray who is fed by the locals, he knows right away who is his friend, and who is a foe, namely all of those weird people in the strange uniform clothes with helmets and clubs. May your riot all the days of your life, Riot-Dog!

I glanced this story in the headlines the other day, but I dont think I read the story, how amazing - a action junkie dog. Perhaps he's someone's guardian angel.
