Putin, the softy!

Vladimir Putin hugs a Bulgarian shepherd dog, after receiving it as a present from Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boiko Borisov in Sofia, on November 13, 2010.  Looks a bit like Ozzy.

In the dog house

Ozzy peed up against my leg.  Not a little widdle either.  I had to change my trousers and my shoes when I got home.
I stayed calm and told him in no uncertain terms that I was not happy with him.  I put him in a submissive down position.  He did not seem to care.
I am trying to work out why this happened and am doing some research on this.
Yes, he was marking his territory because there were others dogs around.  Yes, he wanted to show me or them who was boss.  The latter is unacceptable.
I'll keep you posted.
