Kanellos, is not the MAN's best friend, he is the PEOPLE's best friend. This dog has been in the streets more times than the entire "progressive" movement combined.
Here is a tribute to Kanellos, the Greek Dog of Protest.
Can I get a woof? woof?
Kanellos lies on the ground, finally realizing his destiny.
