No Fear No Favour

Nemo and his royal peeing session!

French presidential dogs have had a history of acting up. And it got noticed in a recent incident when the French President Emmanuel Macron’s dog Nemo comes up with a unique idea of peeing to interrupt his master’s meeting.

This happened in a meeting with Macron’s junior ministers about funding for inner-city developments. The relieving of Nemo left Macron and his team laughing.

A gilded and chandeliered room in the presidential palace and just under the roof the adorable pup relieved himself. What a royal way of relieving oneself!

“I wondered what that noise was and when we turned to watch out what exactly happened we found Nemo relieving himself,” said Brune Poirson, who is the Junior Minister for Ecology.

When Junior Minister, Julien asked, “Does that happen often?”

Macron in his wittiest possible way replied: “You have triggered completely unusual behaviour in my dog.”

Otherwise, a well mannered Nemo was never caught going crazy in public.


The damage tales count of presidential pups goes:

Former president Nicolas Sarkozy’s dogs caused thousands of euros of damage to the palace’s furniture.

The other former president, Jacques Chirac’s Maltese poodle Sumo became downtrodden when he had to leave the lavish palace and move into an apartment.


Nemo as a well-mannered pup:

Unlike his recent behaviour, the good boy, Nemo in August walked out alongside Macron and stood to attention to meet the Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou.

The same dog also greeted Idriss Deby, the president of Chad, on his first day of living in the Elysee Palace.

Nemo and master: A tale at a glance

The black Labrador-Griffon cross was adopted from an animal shelter in August by Macron and his wife, Brigitte, and named after Captain Nemo, the fictional hero of Jules Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.” Macron is a fan of the book.

When tension embroils taking a heightening position, this adorb pup has got a good laugh for you!
