Puppy On Prozac Brings Down Chirac

Ann Althouse brings us this today
Former French President Chirac hospitalised after mauling by his clinically depressed poodle

Admittedly, this looks suspiciously like something from The Onion
but it was actually reported in the Daily Mail Online

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.

Actually, the vicious pet is what I call a "designer dog"
a Maltipoo or Maltese/Poodle hybrid.

Here's a picture of a random Maltipoo.

(And you're saying to yourself that you'd be depressed too if you had to wear a stupid red bow in your hair)
