May 23 (UPI) -- A Russian news broadcast was interrupted by a black lab that surprised the female anchor and refused to abandon his quest for her love.

A video of the World 24 news broadcast, posted to the broadcaster's official YouTube account, shows the female anchor delivering a story about a Moscow demolition when something under the desk in the studio startles her by barking.


The invader, a dog that appears to be a black Labrador, emerges and jumps up for a better look. The anchor, both amused and startled, continues delivering her report, but the interrupting canine then places its front paws on the desk as if about to deliver some breaking news.

The dog sniffs around and makes noise while the anchor complains about the interruption. She reluctantly pats the dog on the head and ends the segment by explaining that she's a cat person.

It was unclear whether the dog was intentionally in the studio or if it somehow wandered in from outside.
