And we’re not mad about it.
In some wholesome news to take you through to the weekend, social distancing laws have sent meteorologists and reporters home to bring us the news from their loungerooms (hello from ours as well, we suppose), which means we’ve got way more risk of dogs infiltrating news bulletins.
And that’s exactly what happened to poor (or lucky) meteorologist Paul Dellegatto who recently tried to present the weather from his house for Fox 13.
But his dog Brody had another idea.
In a video that has emerged this week, with punters having a giggle on social media, Paul is hilariously interrupted by Brody who clearly cares not for the weather and instead wants his dinner. Now.
Wanting all of his attention, Brody first jumped into the shot and bumped Paul’s monitor, meaning the weather maps didn’t update for viewers at home.

Paul said to his golden retriever in between a good scratch: ‘That wasn’t quite smart.’
Motioning for Brody to jump up onto his lap so he could spare the important monitor, Brody had a few moments of pats (and a big yawn, which prompted Paul to say: ‘Didn’t mean to keep you up’) before discovering there was a camera on the other side of the window.

And camera = camera operator. Who can give more pats.
Trotting over to the window, the news anchor was loving Brody’s shot at fame as the loyal hound got up close and personal with viewers at home, nearly close enough we could all boop him through the screen.
Paul was not having it, though, as he exclaimed: ‘Oh boy,’ and the show’s anchor replied: ‘This is amazing.’
Can we also please talk about the fact that in the background, you can see Paul has a framed photo of Brody sitting pretty among his family.
Of course fans who have now watched the clip on Twitter, where it’s been retweeted tens of thousands of times, are obsessed with Paul and Brody.
One amused fan wrote:‘Why have we been doing news any other way? What idiocy made us build sterile studios? I want to see everyone in their pajamas with their pets and a glass of wine telling me how stupid everything is.’
With a great idea for how to revolutionise post-Covid-19 news, another wrote: ‘If we don’t come out of this with pet-featured forecasts, what are we even doing.’

And, of course, there were mentions of the framed photo: ‘You don’t truly love your pets if you don’t have prominently displayed, framed pictures of them in your house.’
Here’s to Paul and Brody.
