    She should not use it as a photo op. Just take him off the dog and tell him it might hurt the dog to do that, and go get him a stepping stool.
    This^^^

    I'm running for the kid, not the camera.

    I worry when I see people allow their kids to treat animals like inanimate objects or like they don't feel pain. There is all kinds of bad that could happen in that situation. The dog could be hurting but not reacting because it's been taught it's not above the child on the pecking order. If the boy did a flamenco dance while up there, that could cause the dog to react by biting if it's really hurt and in the process of moving to bite or even to get away, the child is going for a tumble, possibly knocking his head or face really hard.

    Even if she didn't care about the dog, letting a child stand on an unpredictable and potentially moving object is really dumb. That is a tile floor and his face is over the edge of the counter.

    Trig could've been hurt if the dog leg him know.

    Oh and does it piss me off? Yeah, kinda though I don't care it's Palin. I would be upset by any idiot parent who let their kid do that to the family dog, thereby putting their child in danger.

I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    There is a potential of the dog nipping the boy.

    Palin's been blown out of the water in reputation with her divorce. This appears an attempt of hers to get back to portraying herself in a family/motherly setting with a bit of controversy to make her newsworthy again.

    As a person who's had at least one dog in my home since I was 5 years old and who's loved each and every one of them greatly, I'm not the slightest bit bothered by this photo. The dog clearly has a very loving and supportive relationship with Trig and there's clearly no pain or discomfort involved with the dog. They're most likely the best of buds and spend all day together and I'm certain the dog would give up his life to save Trig from harm.

    If it wasn't Sarah Palin, the pic would probably be a youtube favourite of all the people bitching about it now.

    Save your fake outrage for those who dress up their dogs in costumes or chain them outside all day or mistreat them in other ways.

    It is obviously not the first time that the dog has been exposed to that sort of treatment. Doesn't surprise me though.

    Of course, she'll blame the media for the people who don't like.

    Just the opposite--known liberals seem to be having more compassion for her than known conservatives.

    Now, the purpose of the OP may have been to elicit responses you mention from liberals--I don't know.
    As one who has rarely supported Mrs. Palin on anything, I'm sure this was a bright moment for her with a down syndrome son and I support her posting .
    I am aware how die hard Sarah Palin haters are and I am surprised that took 3 pages for those idiots to come out of the wood work.Die hard Sarah Palin haters exist in both parties.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Pic is at the link (which I'll include). So why put this in Polls? I'm curious if the story, to put it bluntly, pisses you off because I gotta admit, as an animal fan, most especially dogs, it kinda pisses me off. Not at the kid, of course, but I know, if it were me, I'd teach my kid to not stand on the family dog.

    Sorry about the weird font and sizing. It did something weird when I copied the quote.

    Attaching poll.

    You cannot hold the child accountable for the unacceptable use of the dog, but you can hold the parents accountable. And even more accountable and worthy of blame is the moronic parent that thinks it is not only OK but also acceptable to redo (because I doubt she had the camera in her hands when he did it the first time) but also boast and use it as a "change stumbling blocks into stepping stones" because a dog is not a stumbling block and most certainly is not a stepping stone. Palin shows again why she is absolutely unable to understand the stupid things she does.
