Watch French President's dog pee in fireplace at Elysee Palace

President Macron’s youthful team are finding Nemo to be a break with tradition

"Nemo, the dog Macron, is simply in the process relieve himself on the chimney, paw raised and clear air". While the rather loud peeing session was ongoing, Macron and his junior ministers just sat there, helplessly watching.

The 18-month-old Labrador-griffon cross showed scant respect for his master's might by urinating on an ornate fireplace during a meeting at the Élysée Palace. "Emmanuel Macron, smiling, sees what is happening:" He is doing something quite exceptional. "I wondered what that noise was", says the junior minister for ecology, Brune Poirson, who had been talking when the dog began relieving itself.

Junior minister Julien Denormandie then asks if this is something that "happens often".

French TV channel LCI on Sunday broadcast the incident, which was caught on film in a gilded and chandeliered room in the presidential palace. "You've triggered in my dog a behaviour that is completely unusual", said with a laugh Emmanuel Macron.

According to a report published by the Guardian, Nemo is not the only presidential pet dog to occasionally lose its composure.

President Macron and his wife Brigitte adopted Nemo from an animal rescue centre, continuing the tradition of French presidents having a "first dog".

Nicholas Sarkozy's dogs reportedly caused thousands of euros of damage to the palace furniture. The dog had apparently become depressed after moving into a smaller living space and repeatedly attacked Chirac.
