Congress vice-president recently took to twitter took a dig at all his detractors questioning the sudden surge in his popularity. Gandhi tweeted a video of his pet dog Pidi, confessing that Pidi was the one behind the posts.
Pidi, has become famous after this post. Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama, Emmanuel Macron – even if you are not a great fan of these leaders, you cannot help but fall for their adorable pets. These dogs are making their owners more likeable.
Let’s take a look at some politicians’ pets who have made headlines in the past:
Rahul Gandhi, Pidi
You may have a lack of admiration and appreciation for Rahul, but you can't hate his dog. Rahul Gandhi on Sunday posted a video of his ‘Pidi’. In the short 14-second clip, Rahul Gandhi is heard shouting instructions to Pidi who obeys the master in standing up on its haunches and doing a pawsome "namaste". The pet dog shows admirable obedience, training and skill in balancing a crumb on its nose. At the snap of a finger, the crumb disappears at a deft twitch of Pidi's head and a pleased Rahul exclaims "good boy"!
This black and white dog is not the only politician’s pet you’ll fall in love with. Obama’s furry Bo and Sunny are giving Pidi a tough competition.
Obama, Bo & Sunny
Former US president Barack Obama and his family’s pair of Portuguese dogs -- Bo with a distinctive white chest and front paws, and the all-black Sunny — were canine ambassadors for the White House, quite popular with media and visitors. They were so sought after that they even had schedules.
“Everybody wants to see them and take pictures,” former first lady Michelle Obama had said. “I get a memo at the beginning of the month with a request for their schedules and I have to approve their appearances.” she added.
Vladimir Putin, Verny
Putin has a long list of loveable dogs. Putin cuddled Verny, which is Russian for “loyal”, and kissed the pup on the head during a meeting.
Verny, a Turkmen shepherd dog is the epitome of cuteness.
Emmanuel Macron, Nemo
French president Emmanuel Macron was left a little embarrassed after his dog Nemo decided to pee in the ornate fireplace at the Elysee Palace, interrupting a meeting.
These star pets hold as unique a status as their humans.
