Putin’s satellite-tracked dog not a harbinger for anything

Oh, Russia.


MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s black labrador dog, Koni, Friday was given a collar that will allow her master to track her movements by satellite. … “She looks sad,” Ivanov said. “Her free life is over.”

“She is wagging her tail. That means she likes it,” Putin said.

It’s not like we don’t have GPS-based dog collars here in the US. It’s just somehow funnier when used by the ex-head of the RKGB.
