Nothing to see here – just the President of Ireland and an attention-hungry puppy
Anyone who has ever had a puppy will know that they’re not inclined to wait for the most convenient moments to demand attention.
When the Irish president, Michael D. Higgins, was in the middle of an interview with national broadcaster RTÉ, his seven-month-old Bernese mountain dog, Misneach, had a better idea – he wanted to play.
Here’s how the president coped.

That’s the way to do it.
TikTokers were here for the wholesome scenes.
