During a weather report discussing the icy conditions in Northern Virginia, Fox 5 reporter Bob Barnard was joined by a runaway puppy and was quick to abandon his report to chase and coo over the pup. The dog, named Pierogi, ran over to Mr Barnard and he quickly scooped her up in his arms.
Mr Barnard said: “Forget the people we talked to earlier, I want to get to know this dog!”Pierogi seemed quite happy with Mr Barnard and was sniffing and licking his face cheerfully.

The presenter’s in the studio joked: “This is Bob’s ice scraping and kennel service!”

Mr Barnard then laughed: “I won’t even charge for this!”

The puppy’s owner eventually came out of her house after realising Pierogi had jumped over the gate to get in on the action.

Don’t Let Your Dog Ride in the Back of Your Truck Unrestrained. An estimated 100,000 dogs die each year from riding in pickup beds each year, and that doesn’t take into account all of the injuries seen each year. Dogs in pickup beds are also at risk of being hit with debris that can cause injuries.

The report ended when the presenter suggested Mr Barnard should set up a play date with Pierogi and his own dog, Meredith.

Dog’s crashing news broadcasts have become more common as some journalists had to report from home during lockdown.

Last year, Fox 13 reporter Paul Dellegatto was presenting the weather from his home when his dog, Brody, continuously interrupted his segment.

There has also been a fair share of child-related mishaps on live TV throughout the pandemic.

MP's children crash live interview - 'They're jumping on the bed!' (Image: Sky News)As the politician was speaking about Covid restrictions, his young son, Adam, opened the door behind him and walked in.Sky host Kimberley Leonard said: "Your son is behind you. Good morning."

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.

Mr Tugendhat encouraged his child to leave, promising to do face-painting with him later.

Ms Leonard jokingly asked if he would be doing the face-painting, but the politician said that it was "beyond his skill set".

Again, the pair tried to keep the interview going, but his children kept talking and then started to jump on the bed in the room too.’

The MP said flustered: “I’m terribly sorry, we've now got jumping on the bed."

At this point, Ms Leonard said they would just have to leave the interview there.
