Posted on 07/11/2014 2:59:48 AM PDT by tbpiper
The Secret Service has started deploying specialized canine units to help protect the area around the White House grounds, where tourists flock day and night to catch a glimpse of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Although the Secret Service has used police dogs since 1976 to screen areas for presidential visits, this is the first time theyre being broadly deployed among the general public.(emphasis added)

Seems Benito is getting a bit nervous.
My father in law saw Benito hanging from the hook. he said it was one of the coolest things he had ever seen.
Ahh..to have memories like that.
They just have to use the dogs. They just HAVE to. You see, they HAVE to use the dogs because the fences around the White House just don’t work. :o)
Napoleon in Animal Farm protected himself with dogs too. The picture of the Animal Farm pigs walking on two legs would fit right in on this thread.
I wonder if Obama ever thinks one of them would look good for dinner?
I wonder if he’s having nightmares about pitchforks and torches.
He sure is careful about the border at the White House, too bad he doesn’t care about the border for the nation...typical Obama, it’s all about him, his safety, his family...to hell with the rest if us peasants.
My father in law was at the same place/same time after trekking through North Africa.
He told me he and a friend heard that Benito was hanging out at a certain location, and they proceeded to go to see the spectacle. They were previously instructed to avoid the area that they would have to pass through, as it was not safe. As they proceeded, they passed German units that had surrendered, but still had weapons. When they saw what they would have to pass through, they turned around and went back to their unit.
So, my father in law was there, probably 27 years old, but did not get to see il Duce.
Problem with that is that they are muzzled. Pointless.
Just like French dogs today. Protecting the Louvre without any teeth. It’s like the cops without guns.
Unless the muzzles have a "quick release" feature.
Not sure what to think of this.
Dogs are out in the open patrolling all the time. So big deal. Not real shocking. Biggest problem is whether it is worth the cost.
Not in France. The wussies are too afraid of hurting anyone, and all working dogs like that must be muzzled period.
The walls around his ivory tower continue to get bigger.
I’ll bet that if you asked and the Secret Service responded truthfully, you would learn that Barack Obama has a daily death threat total exceeding the weekly totals for other presidents.
I’m searching for the word to use here but my brain isn’t up to the task yet. (It’s early)..
What word means ‘unaware (or callously indifferent to) of how bad your actions look’,
Or something better than that?
As in ‘I let walking diseases and God only what kind and how many terrorists and other criminals enter the non-existent border fence by the thousands to threaten the safety of Americans and the fabric of American society; but Ima get me some attack dogs for around mah house because a whole, solid, working fence that’s guarded by armed and dangerous agents just doesn’t seem like enough’... ??
Will they take the pooches to Martha’s Vineyard?
I may have found the word: ANOSOGNOSIA
SUMMARY: Anosognosia is a common symptom of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder with psychotic features.
Also called “lack of awareness” or “lack of insight,” it has an anatomical basis that has been confirmed in multiple scientific studies.
The word itself comes from the Greek word for disease (nosos) and knowledge (gnosis) and literally means to not know a disease.
It affects approximately 50 percent of individuals with schizophrenia and 40 percent of individuals with bipolar disorder and is the most common reason that individuals with schizophrenia and bipolar do not take their medications.
When taking medications, awareness of illness improves in some patients.
But they’ll poop in Moochelle’s garden!
We have dad's photos of the partisani (waving from the back of an ox-cart, sitting around drinking wine) - he took a bunch of photos of Mussolini & Co. but we can't find the negatives. >-<
i’ll work on it next time :)
Good lord, man! That’s one ugly dawg! The spotted creature on the chain looks fearsome too.
You do know that is a hyena, no?
Just have to say...people are used to seeing "working dogs" on occasion, including police and/or service dogs...and I think folks generally don't interfere with them or their owners/handlers.
So why the warning?! It's a little off-putting, to say the least...nothing "Secret" about THOSE "Secret Service" agents. So just SAY they're guard dogs, stay back.
Oh wait...if they're mingling amongst people but not to be touched or petted, then wouldn't that scare the sh*t out of anyone unfortunate enough to be randomly sniffed?
Or are they muzzled? (the dogs, not the peops, of course)
0bama has never yet figured out a better way to do anything, including canine security around the White House...I am SO looking forward to "moving out" day for him, 2017...
