@SarahPalinUSA's son Trig uses their pet dog as a "stepping stone". #cruel
Sarah Palin thought photos of her six-year-old son Trig using a dog as a "stepping stone" were inspirational, and they did inspire -- Palin's own followers to rip her for animal cruelty.
Palin posted the pics on New Year's Day showing Trig standing over the sink ... using the family dog to boost him up so he could do dishes.
While some of her loyal followers defended the photos, others called the pics "cruel" and a form of animal cruelty.
The photos remain up and Palin has yet to respond to the criticism.
Sarah Palin Blasted for Pic of Trig Standing on a Dog
Happy New Year!
May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward. Trig just reminded me. He, determined to help wash dishes with an oblivious mama not acknowledging his signs for "up!", found me and a lazy dog blocking his way. He made his stepping stone.
