A weather reporter was interrupted in the middle of the forecast by a cheeky dog who jumped up and stole her microphone.
Nadezhda Serezhkina told the audience how spring came when the mutt intervened with his light fingers.
“Spring has arrived in Moscow, the temperature will be + 8 ° C, + 9 ° C,” she said in a live broadcast from the Sparrow Hills overlooking the Russian capital.
The Labrador named Martin jumped up, threw Nadezhda back, and stole her microphone.
“Stop,” called the helpless weather reporter.
“Stop it, stop it, come here …”
The dog runs away and viewers on Mir TV – a channel that broadcasts to the countries of the old Soviet Union – watched Nadezhda go hunting.
Back in the studio, the presenter Elina Dashkueva looked stunned for a moment before declaring that “in the face of all this” the connection with the forecaster had been lost.
She later told observers that “no one was injured, but the microphone took a bite or two”.
Nadezhda was then seen next to the proud-looking dog, who was trying to continue her weather report as best it could.
“Elina, as I said, the weather is really perfect, just right for walking your dogs … that’s all from me …” she said.
Nadezhda finished the report by shaking the dog’s paw.
