Canine steals reporter’s mike, viewers’ hearts on reside TV

A Russian reporter was having a “ruff” time on live television when a dog grabbed her microphone and picked it up and launched a chase that baffled news channels and melted viewers’ hearts. Nadezhda Serezhkina was just starting her live appearance on Mir TV about warm weather in Moscow when Martin, a golden retriever, did a high jump that shot his stick in his mouth.

The correspondent eventually caught up with the Newshound, who let go of the microphone. Serezhkina resumed her live broadcast and patted her new friend. Thursday’s video of the incident quickly became one of the most popular on Mir TV’s YouTube channel, reaching nearly 500,000 views in four days.
