Sarah Palin has a Facebook page for all the world to see. So all the world saw her son Trig using the family dog as a step stool.  And not everybody was happy.

Here is the Post.



As of Jan 5, the picture has over 25 thousand comments. Some supporters of course but a whole lot of folks thought it was rather cruel for Trig to be standing on his service dog's back.


People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals also expressed displeasure.  In a statment to the Website POLITICO,  PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said, “It’s odd that anyone — let alone a mother — would find it appropriate to post such a thing, with no apparent sympathy for the dog in the photo."

Sarah Palin responded on her Facebook page, saying, " least Trig never ate a dog like President Obama". Or words to that effect. You can read it here.
