A Russian news broadcast was suddenly interrupted when a friendly black lab wandered into the studio, startling anchorwoman Ilona Linarte.
Anchorwoman Ilona Linarte, from Mir24 TV, was taken aback at first but finally came around and gave the pooch some pats on the head. Linarte did her best to keep the broadcast going, but the pup really wanted to play. From behind the desk you can see a tail wagging before he pops his head up to say “hi”.
We think all news stations should have dog co-anchors. Watch the news clip above.Linarte shouts to her producers behind the camera, saying “I’ve got a dog here! What do I do with this dog?”
Since going viral, there has been much speculation on whether the video was staged or not, considering Mir 24’s logo is a black lab. Publicity stunt or not, this adorable pooch warmed our hearts.
