"Occupy Wall Street," the protest movement going on in New York City, as well as cities across the United States, started a new tactic yesterday: Instead of just protesting Wall Street, itself, protesters actually picked the homes of several Wall Street CEOs and moved the Protest there.
Now, my opinion of the "Occupy Wall Street" Protest, is not my business. However, when it spreads to Protesting the HOMES of Wall Street Workers, then it is in effect, Protesting Wall Street DOGS (and cats, and other pets.)
I have mixed feelings as to whether or not I would want a Protest held at my own 0.46 acres of Suburbia.
One of the pictures of the "Occupy Wall Street" Protest, showed the protesters protesting at an Apartment building. One must ASSUME that the Apartment Building houses Dogs, Cats, and other animals, who were probably home at the time.
1. Can one imagine the combined barking and excitement of the Dogs protesting the Protesters -- certainly it would make for an exciting day, but would it put the dogs very lives in danger, as no doubt the elderly lady in Apartment 4B would complain, and the dogs would face eviction?
2. For Protests at One-Family Homes, what is the etiquette for a Dog to go outside to take care of bodily functions? For that matter, if one's home is to be Protested, is one expected to pick up poop first? Mom would probably like to leave a whole two or three weeks worth of poop out, for the Protesters to step in, but then she would worry they would think she was a slob.
3. What if a dog bites a Protester? I am usually Hostess Pennie, but I am not sure how I would react to an angry placard-waving mob yelling and trampling down my favorite sunning spots. What if I bit one of them?
I am thinking that perhaps Protesting should be kept to the Public Arena, to keep Pets safe from all the ramifications of dog bites, dog eviction, when/where to poop, etc.

As always, you are a very practical pup. Have you ever considered running for office?
And another thing -- I don't think that either Sophie or I should be expected to invite human protesters inside to use one of our bathrooms!
I thinks I would give 'em a butt bite... lol... although I'd better make sure I's up to date on all my shots first!!
I hates it when ANYONE comes on my terriertory!
Momma sez they would leave cuz my yappin' would drive 'em nutso!!
Mom says that maybe all dogs of the Greater Cincinnati area should take said poop downtown to the park and send those fools home.....
