Denver is known as a dog town, so it’s no surprise that four-legged friends were well represented on the picket lines during the Denver teacher strike. The lizard … the lizard was a surprise.

Got a good photo of a Denver teacher strike dog? Or any other teacher strike companion animal?

Send it to co.tips@chalkbeat.org and we’ll add it to our gallery.
