Putin's pet Koni is fine, too old to appear in public

Vladimir Putin's pet Koni is fine, the president's spokesperson says, but media attention makes the dog nervous.  

In an interview about the president and his daily routine the spokesperson was asked why Putin's favourite dog, labrador Koni, had not been seen around lately. 

Peskov assured  that Koni was fine, but "too old to bear media fuss". 

Russian president is known for being a huge  dog-fan.
