Macron's dog finds his own way of saying 'oui' to president's guests

Immanuel Macron

French President Emmanuel Macron's 2-year-old dog Nemo relieved itself on the gilded fireplace at the Elysee Palace in front of journalists, unaware that it was interrupting important negotiations between the president and the ministers.

The act was caught on camera by French TV station TF1, which was recording the discussion.

Nemo is pictured peeing on a fireplace in the French palace during Macron's meeting with junior ministers.

"Emmanuel Macron, smiling, sees what is happening:" He is doing something quite exceptional.

"I wondered what that noise was", said the junior minister Brune Poirson, as they all burst out laughing on realising what had transpired.

'Does that happen often?' asks Mr Denormandie.

Macron and his wife took Nemo from an animal shelter in August 2017.

"You've triggered a completely unusual behaviour in my dog", he says.

Nicolas Sarkozy's dogs reportedly caused thousands of euros worth of damage to furniture in the palace. His black labrador-griffon cross, Nemo, is the first French presidential pet to come from a rescue centre, and since his arrival this summer he has been photographed in the gardens and even standing to attention on the palace steps to welcome Niger's president, Mahamadou Issoufou. The dog had apparently become depressed after moving into a smaller living space and repeatedly attacked Chirac.
