Kanellos The Greek Riot Dog

Simply incredible...A lone dog that has been seen at nearly every demonstration in Athens over the last two years has turned up again during the recent protests against new austerity measures. I mean, seriously, WTF?! What would make a dog go to EVERY protest in Athens?? A re-incarnation of a former protester? A dog that likes a fight with the po-po now and then? The photos really had me thinking....

The dog in these pictures is NOT Kanellos (a famous Greek riot dog, who died in 2008 and is buried in the Politechniou, Athens) but his successor, Loukanikos.
Incidentally, 'po-po' in Greek is a childish expression meaning ass. :-)
