French president's dog caught peeing in the palace


Luckily, Brune Poirson, 35, Benjamin Griveaux, 39, and Julien Denormandie, 37, the junior ministers for ecology, the economy and local government, also see the amusing side.

'The dog is in the middle of doing something quite exceptional, ' comments an amused Macron.

In the footage for the channel TF1, three junior ministers are in Macron's ornate office talking to the president about inner-city investment when Nemo relieves himself behind them.

Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, was holding a meeting at the Elysee with some of his ministers, when suddenly, his dog entered the room and urinated into a fireplace, right in front of the TV cameras.

Junior minister for ecology, Brune Poirson said: "I wondered what that noise was".

The video capturing Nemo doing the deed on the antique fireplace has lit social media on fire.

Junior Minister of Territorial Cohesion, Julien Denormandie, asked if this kind of thing happened often, to which Macron laughed and replied, "You have sparked a totally unusual behaviour in my dog".

Nemo was adopted by Macron and his wife from an animal shelter and is believed to be around two years old. According to the BBC, he was named after a favourite literary character of Macron's, Captain Nemo, who commands the submarine Nautilus in the Jules Verne classic Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea.
