Dog interrupts live news bulletin with impromptu TV appearance [w/video]
Metro [UK] ^ | 4/23/12 | Mark Molloy

Posted on 04/28/2012 1:00:28 AM PDT by Slings and Arrows

Residents sitting down to watch the news in Toronto received a surprise when a small dog interrupted a live bulletin with an impromptu TV appearance.

As newsreader Leslie Roberts began to introduce a news story, Storm the weather dog popped his head up from beneath the table - much to everyone's surprise.

After finishing off the news item with the minimum of fuss, the unruffled news anchor said: 'People may have noticed a few minutes ago I was reading the news when a dog suddenly popped up.'

He then referred the audience to the dog's owner, weather man Anthony Farnell, who helped explain the surprise appearance.

'He was supposed to actually stay underneath the desk, but he did pop up out of the blue,' said the meteorologist.

'You are not seeing things. You are not hallucinating at home.'

Nice doggie!

Reminds me of the kitty who interrupted another weatherman:

Probably caught a glimpse of Carole Burnette’s star-making appearance on the Gary Moore Show.

He couldn’t do a worse job than some of the “talent” in the business.

Best weather report I’ve ever seen, and I don’t speak German. It’s obvious that the weatherman and the cat are buddies.

How cute! I understood about half of what he was saying, which gave me clues to the other half. The kitteh was very well-behaved!

LOL!

Only my memory.

You remember. "A present from the girls in the office"

Carole: "Are we on TV? Really on TV?"

Gary: "Yes. Millions of people are watching you right now."

Carole: "Me? They're watching me?"

Gary: "Yes."

Carole: "Hit it, Leon!" (Bumps and grinds. Lets her hair down. Ta-ta-ta TAH!!!)

Here's my original translation:

"Und der studio kat"

After further review, I now hear:

der ist und studio kat

Jawol!
