Say hello to Nemo, the ‘First Dog’ of France!

Politicians rarely have friends they can trust, do they?  That’s why the smarter of the lot turn to dogs. Consider how the US Presidential elections get swayed to a degree by the dogs. Approval ratings, image perception, and PR, all seem to get a positive influence from dogs.

Let’s vote for people who rescue dogs!

And Nemo isn’t complaining.

The first family of France has named their youngest member after Captain Nemo, the famous fictional character in Jules Verne’s ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.’

The Macrons adopted Nemo from the SPA animal shelter at Hermeray, outside Paris.
