Kanellos the Greek Protest Dog

Kanellos the Protest Dog (pictured above) has been making frequent appearances at Athens demonstrations over the past two years. Head over to the Guardian for a bunch of photos.

Clicking through the images, I find it interesting that Kanellos seems at times actively engaged in the protests, whereas in other instances he simply sits and watches the show. Thus, it's hard to guess at his politics.

Given this information, I have no reason not to believe that Kanellos is the earthly incarnation of Eris, the Greek goddess of strife, discord, contention and rivalry. Prove me wrong.
