Dog interrupts cat-loving news anchor during live TV broadcast

They tell you not to work with dogs, and this news anchor was not a fan.

Another live broadcast has been interrupted, this time by a dog who has become a viral sensation after interrupting a newsreader during a live news broadcast in Russia.

The black lab ran over to the news presenter, distracting her from the news.

"I've got a dog here," she says in Russian. "What is this dog doing in the studio?"

And just because this dog definitely needed more screen time, it made sure its presence was noticed the labrador tried to climb up the desk.

The friendly lab received a quick pat before the newsreader revealed she's not that big of a dog person.

"I actually prefer cats," she told the audience.
