One might say this is an adorable photograph of a political leader with a cute puppy dog.
Others might say this is perfect inspiration for a meme that will go viral on social media.
Unfortunately for Russian President Vladimir Putin, the latter is exactly what happened after this image was taken of him kissing a Turkmen shepherd dog.
Putin was given the dog as a belated 65th birthday present from Turkmenistan’s President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov when they met in Sochi, on October 11.
But plenty have seen a funnier side to the photos taken during the presentation, and they have taken to social media to share the fun.
While media have been reporting Putin has named the cute fluffy, Verny, which means “faithful” in Russian, there are jokes about that as well.
But it was a photoshop battle in Reddit, titled PsBattle: Turkmen president gave Putin a puppy as a gift, that had a number of funny memes.
But it was an image of President Berdimuhamedov handing over the dog that had a few people up in arms.
However, there were plenty that saw the funny side.
