Chirac Mauled by Pet Dog

Let this be a cautionary tale to President Obama as he chooses a family dog: Former French President Jacques Chirac was rushed to the hospital yesterday after being mauled by his "clinically depressed" white Maltese. The dog, named Sumo, is prone to "vicious, unprovoked attacks" according to Chirac's wife, and is on anti-depressants. Mr. Chirac was treated as an outpatient and sent home.
