Dogs Against Romney Group Protests In New York City (VIDEO)

Dogs (and their owners) howled their disapproval of Mitt Romney in New York City on Tuesday.

Dogs Against Romney, a Facebook-based protest group, demonstrated outside Madison Square Garden to bring attention to the now-infamous incident in which the former Massachusetts governor, now a leading Republican candidate for president, put his Irish setter Seamus inside a dog crate and strapped it to his vehicle for a 12-hour drive to a family vacation.

Using the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show as a backdrop, a small cluster of protesters with signs that were media-ready with talking points braved the New York cold to greet passersby with their anti-Romney message. The Huffington Post was on the scene to take in the day's events.
