The headline: “Former French President Chirac hospitalised after mauling by his clinically depressed poodle”
It only sounds like a joke. In fact, it appears to be true. the former president of the French was treated as an outpatient. And yes, the dog is being treated for depression.
My grandmother owned a poodle … vicious nasty rat dog that it was. It is quite possibly the only breed of dog that I have not so fond memories of (those that I have actually met).
