The news might be largely full of doom and gloom these days: misery, death, destruction, and evil. But that just makes this yarn all the more pure and nice and good.

A Russian news broadcast had to be interrupted while live on air by a breaking and extremely important piece of news: A dog wanted to say hi.

Newsreader Linarte was delivering a bulletin about housing regulations when a big black lab decided to have a little jump around and a bit of a bark and a peep at what was happening up on the news desk.

The startled anchor pushed on with the bulletin, which is very rude TBH as the sweet dog probably had a vital story about a ball to file.

YES THE BLESSED SWEET POOCH PLEASE TO TELL ME ALL THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE PARK AND HOW GOOD IT WAS.

The dog was, reportedly, in the studio for another program but got loose and decided to go say g’day to all the people out there in TV-land.

Maybe that’s how we fix the bleak news cycle: More live updates from dogs.
