Adorable puppy interrupts live TV news report and steals the show

It can be a little daunting watching the news at the moment, but one report was made all the better by an adorable puppy who completely stole the show.

FOX 5 correspondent Bob Barnard was covering the snowy conditions in Northern Virginia in the US, when an adorable dog scampered into shot. Bob wasted no time in crouching down to scoop up the pup, named Pierogi, with it later being revealed that she had escaped her house to play in the snow.

‘Come here!’ Bob called, as he picked the dog up, clearly having the time of his life, before reuniting her with her owner.

‘Forget the people we talked to earlier, I wanna get to know this dog,’ he laughed. ‘I got a couple of businesses going! I’m gonna be dog-sitting.’

‘It’s a great day,’ he declared. ‘Life is good’.

Fans were thrilled by the pup, and impressed at Bob’s ability to ‘roll with the punches’ live on air, as one commented: ‘He is now by far my favourite reporter. What a way to handle all these random encounters. Have a fantastic day Bob!’

‘This guy looked like he had so much fun with this segment,’ one more said, while another added: ‘I hereby nominate this for best video of 2021.’

Celebrate Your Pet at Every Age. Everyone loves a new puppy or kitten, says Dr. Becker. “They’re wildly kinetic, and humorous. An older pet is thinner, bonier. Their coats aren’t as soft, they might have bad breath.” But, like people, a pet’s needs change with age. They may be less active, preferring a leisurely stroll to a rollicking tug-of-war. “Our old retriever, who’s blind, still wants to retrieve.” Adapting to their changing needs will ensure your old friend remains a healthy and happy member of your family.

With more TV being filmed from home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic over the past year, plenty of news reports and interviews have been crashed by furry friends.

Last year, weatherman Paul Dellegato’s report was interrupted by his pup Brody, who didn’t care about the weather, but instead just wanted his dinner.
