dogs at Melbourne rally support a fair deal for refugees

When I walked in today's huge rally asking our government to treat refugees fairly and humanely, I left Penny at home.

She's not good in crowds, so I thought she could best support the cause by resting on her comfy mat.

I did, however, see this dog passing by with his human.


I thought they weren't part of the crowd, but this dog definitely was.


I checked out the dog's eye view Penny would have had if she had come.


To me this sign sums up the issue...

It was kind of you to leave Penny at home if crowds aren't her thing. Brier doesn't like them either. And best thoughts of support to the cause.

I'm pleased to see so many people there for an important issue. The dogs eye view pic really highlighted it.

Interesting taking a picture from a dogs point of view.

looks like a sizable turnout parlance... let's hope the government starts to take notice...

the 'dogs eye view' of the rally looks pretty scary for those closer to the ground - my little petey hates crowds - i don't wonder if that's what she sees...

Curator, the dogs I saw at the rally seemed calm and happy, but Penny would not have been okay.

Ludo and proud womon, it's such an important issue for Australia. I sure do hope the government begins to realise that they can still win votes if they act responsibly and fairly.

Lassie and Benji, people stared to see me with my camera on the ground, but I wanted to see what it would have been like for Penny.
