Anything can happen on live TV, as an unexpected guest proved during a local Russian newscast.
A friendly dog apparently wanted a little airtime, startling news anchor Ilona Linarte before stealing the show.
In the video the “Today” show posted on Wednesday, a black lab started barking when Linarte was taken aback. “I’ve got a dog in here,” she explained in Russian. “What is this dog doing in the studio?”
That’s when the pup happily jumped up and put his paws on the desk, Linarte awkwardly petted his head, “I actually prefer cats,” she admitted. “I’m a cat lady.”
The “Today” show reported that the impromptu guest star was on another show before wandering over to the news studio.
