(If you don’t care about Putin’s poodle and just want to see cute Scottie photos, click here. We have some wonderful Scottish Terrier pictures for you)
Months back we reported on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s dissing of Scottish terriers. In the course of our background research we discovered that while Putin likes to show off his macho relationship with his large lab Koni, he is also rumoured to be fond of a small poodle named Tosya, something he prefers to keep hidden.
Well, yesterday, due to a flurry of Putin news, we got a number of hits on our original Bad Vlad story including one from a visitor who was kind enough to send us a link to a photo of Putin with his poodle. While the photo’s a little grainy, it definitely illustrates the intensity of this special relationship between president and poodle.
We recommend you save a copy on your hard drive in case either the photo or the Scottie News team disappear.

The committee rejected a proposal to build a statue to Putin.
