Next French Premier could have a dog’s life!

PARIS, FRANCE - Adding a little flavour to what many French voters are calling a dull presidential campaign, a tiny dog named "Saucisse" [Sausage] has appeared on the ballot, opposing the incumbent President Jacques Chirac and chief rival Socialist Prime Minister Lionel Jospin.

"Saucisse is sending a warning to politicians that unless they do better we would rather vote for a dog," says the dog's guardian Serge Scotto, referring to the upcoming national elections on April 21.
