Vicious


Former French president Jacques Chirac was rushed to hospital after being mauled by his own 'clinically depressed' pet dog.
The 76-year-old statesman was savaged by his white Maltese dog - which suffers from frenzied fits and is being treated with anti-depressants.
The animal, named Sumo, had become increasingly violent over the past years and was prone to making 'vicious, unprovoked attacks', Chirac's wife Bernadette said.

Why did the dog become depressed?

Goodness, how sad for all of them. Couldn't imagine my dogs being clinically depressed - the worst of it is when a walk is curtailed or I have to brush them (which they hate) ...they give me such a look! A quick cuddle and all are content once more.

The dog is being treated with anti-depressants? I didn't know anti-depressants were even designed for dogs. And, as Welshcakes says: why did the dog become depressed?!

Gordon Brown must be relieved that he doesn't have a dog.

Biting a Frenchman is acceptable, but ill advised to put them into your mouth. Who knows where they've been!
