Well for those who don't know it yet, I'd like you to meet Loukanikos, or 'Sausage' in Greece.
He is Athen's world famous Riot Dog.
He is only a stray, but he's at almost every major protest in Greece since 2008.
But Sausage isn't the first Riot Dog in Greece. He is the successor of the first Riot Dog, Kanellos.
Kanellos had been 'attending' riots since the 90's. He appeared in photographs of general assembly of students in the occupied National Techical University of Athens, as a puppy. Can't imagine how awfully cute that would had been. But he died in 2008 of possibly old age.
And now Greece has Sausage.
And he's been with the people of Greece ever since.
Fighting along side with his human pack for the same cause (a few pets and treats perhaps?)
And probably sometimes taking things into his own ehem, paws.
Making the people all the more believe in the cause they are fighting for. 'Coz if this mutt cares, why can't the people care?
He's so famous, there are even caricatures about him.
You can read more about him here.
And let your heart melt watching this collection of pictures and videos of him fighting side by side with the protestors.
Now go and hug your dogs 'coz they are the best. Whether they refuse to take their vitamins or not.
