Rahul Gandhi's Pidi And 7 Other Powerful Political Pets

Lennu, Paddles and Buffy (from left to right)

They are equal parts regal and adorable. They are animals in high places. This is the fluffy world of the most powerful first pets from across the globe: a distinguished and exclusive club of political pets with better lives than most humans. The world looks up to their humans but their humans bow down to these cuties.

Pidi - Rahul Gandhi's dog

Pidi Gandhi was introduced to the world through a video that went viral on Sunday. The clever little dog with his biscuit trick remained the top trend on Twitter all day, as many made memes and others asked for Pidi to get his own Twitter account.
 
Lennu - Finland's happy first pup

Lennu belongs to Finland's President Sauli Niinisto. The 5-year-old Boston Terrier, possibly more famous than his human, shot to fame for his ridiculously happy face.
 
The first felines of Malaysia

Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak is also the proud human of the fluffy foursome of Leo, Kiki, Tiger and Simba.
 

Larry - the Chief Mouser of the Cabinet Office in UK

Perhaps the most famous political pets are UK's 10 Downing Street cats - a position that Larry has held since 2011. Larry has seen one Prime Minister change during his tenure but his spot in 10D has remained intact. Besides catching pesky mice, Larry's duties include testing antique furniture for napping quality.

The first dogs of Russia

Vladmir Putin, the President of Russia, is a well-known dog lover. At present he is the proud owner of Verni, Yume and Buffy. Verni, a top breed alabai, was a gift from Turkmenistan's president.
