A stuffed dog sits next to a sign at a protest against gay marriage in front of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's office in New York, Sunday, July 24, 2011. New York became the sixth and largest state to recognize same-sex weddings in a close state Senate vote on June 24 after strong lobbying by Cuomo and advocates. The first gay marriages in New York were performed just after midnight and continued through the day at municipal offices that opened for special weekend hours. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig) less
